Obtaining a driver's license in North Cyprus
While on the island as a tourist, your national driver’s license will be sufficient. But once you have been allowed to stay on the island beyond the regulatory period (residence on the basis of a residence permit), it becomes necessary to obtain a local driver’s license. In this case, you have to pay for and complete training at a local driving school, pay the state fee for issuing the license, pass the exams (attention! The exams can only be taken in Turkish or English!) and after a couple of weeks you will definitely receive a “license” to drive.
Good luck on the roads!
