Vietnam will issue international driving licences nationwide beginning on October 1 as Circular 29/TT-BGTVT takes effect, according to the Vietnam Road Administration.

Nguyen Van Quyen, Deputy Head of the administration, said the circular was issued in line with the 1968 Convention on Road Traffic that Vietnam signed.

The administration is inviting tenders for the provision of equipment and software before holding training classes for the transport departments of provinces and cities.

Provinces and cities were asked to prepare facilities and staff to implement the issuing of international driving licences on schedule.-VNA
