What license do you have a UK license? Why would you need/want a Tunisian one?

Ive been here 8 years and still using my UK license. I've rented cars no problem and used it on insurance here.

I've been driving for 15 years on a UK license for both my own car and rental cars without any problems. If you've applied and heard nothing, then you've done all u can do so wouldn't stress about it.

Thanks everyone.Appreciate the replies.I think our main worry was if insurance would use as excuse not to pay out if in an accident.Will forget about it now

I'm sure it's only the other way around. A Tunisian license in the UK can only be used for 1 year.

Yes, a Tunisian driving license is only valid for one year in the UK , then you need to have a uk one. Also the insurance is very expensive for that year on a Tunisian one.

You can drive in the uk on tunisian licence for 12 months from wheb you enter... In that time you need change it, by doing English test from provisional and then to full x x hop that helps x

You are better off getting everything translated work experience, all your degree papers... is it the equivalent as doing a degree here in the uk? If not you might find it doesn't count unfortunately x x
