Certification of Driving License


The Embassy accepts applications to certify driving licenses issued by the Department of Motor Traffic [DMT] in Sri Lanka. Applications are forwarded to the Department of Motor Traffic in Sri Lanka for certification. Once the verification is received it will be legalized and issued to the applicant.


Following are the necessary documents:



Self Explanatory letter addressed to the Commissioner of the Motor Traffic with the reason for certification


Original driving license with two photocopies


Valid Sri Lankan Travel document


National Identity Card


Resident permit


Relevant fee


If the verification is obtained directly from the Department of Motor Traffic by the applicant, it should be attested by the Consular Division of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Sri Lanka in order to be legalized by the Embassy.
