If you are a Rwandan citizen or a foreign resident rather than a visitor, you can drive in Rwanda on a foreign driving licence for 12 months.
Within these 12 months, however, you will need to apply for a Rwandan driving licence.
Exchanging a foreigner driving licence is not automatic. You may need to pass a theoretical or practical driving test, depending on the assessment.
