Thank you for contacting us.

First, none of the foreign licenses is valid in Vietnam, including your country license. There are conflicting reports about this but the reality is sadly not a good news.

Unfortunately, Vietnamese laws don’t allow foreigners to drive Vietnamese registered cars due to licenses. However, foreigners who work at embassies can drive diplomatic registered cars. People who have a Vietnamese driving license can only drive Vietnamese registered 4-wheel vehicles. FYI, it’s not possible to convert your home country to a Vietnamese driving license if you travel on a tourist visa.

If you hire a car in Vietnam and want an English-speaking tour guide, the guide and driver are different people because one can’t do both works and no driver speaks good English enough to be a guide. One 4×4 car can accommodate maximum three travellers, the guide, and the driver.

In general, you can either just hire a car with a driver or book a guided trip and the cost depends on the size of the group.

If you have more questions or are not clear with any detail in this reply please get back to us anytime via email, Yahoo Messenger or Skype or phone.

We look forward to hearing from you again.
