TIRANA, November 1
Bulgaria recognizes the right of Albanian citizens to use their current driving licenses in Bulgaria under the condition that the license is valid and the holder has the right to drive vehicles of the respective category.
Moreover, Albanians residing in Bulgaria will be able to use their license for up to a year and afterward, they can convert to a Bulgarian driving license without taking a driving test. The General Directorate of Road Transport Services confirmed on Thursday.
The decision follows the ratification of the Vienna Convention on Road Traffic by Albania and Bulgaria.
The shortest route between Tirana and Sofia is about an eight hours drive which is pretty short if compared to the driving distance between Tirana and Saranda 4 hours 19 min.
