Arrangement with French St. Martin about Dutch driver’s licenses

POSTED: 07/4/11 11:59 AM

GREAT BAY – St. Maarten and the Collectivité d’Outre Mer de Saint Martin agreed in December of last year to a grace period for people with a Dutch driver’s license living on the French side. In 2006 a transitional arrangement was put in place for this situation.

Prime Minister Wescot-Williams said this week in Parliament that the Justice Ministry sent a letter to the Collectivité outlining the conditions for obtaining a Dutch driver’s license for the last time. “It is now up to the Collectivité to inform the people, many of who, we have understood already have deposited their expired Dutch licenses.”

Dutch citizens living in a different European country (and the French side is considered part of France) are not able to renew their Dutch driver’s licenses once they expire. They have to instead apply for a French driver’s license.
