More about Icelandic Driving Licence Photo - Requirements

Icelandic Driving Licence: what is it and how to get it

The Icelandic driving licence is a permit to drive motorized vehicles in Iceland, issued by the Icelandic Ministry of Transport. In addition, with the Icelandic driver's license you can drive in the European Union, two other EFTA member states (Liechtenstein and Norway) and in the United Kingdom. The Icelandic driving license also works as an identification document, as an ID card.

The Icelandic driving license can be issued to those who:

  1. meets the minimum requirements of Mental and Physical Health Regulation to be able to drive safely;
  2. has proved by examination that he has sufficient driving skills and knowledge of traffic legislation and vehicles, and has proved to be able to drive safely,
  3. meets the age requirements (at least 17 years old; however, one can begin his/her driving lessons at the age of 16),
  4. has a permanent residence in Iceland.

In the case of an application, the applicant shall, in preparation for a driving test, attend practical training with a driving instructor who is certified for that qualification category and attend theoretical studies which, as a rule, must take place in a driving school that has an operating license.

Either for the issuance or the renewal of the driving licence, the applicant should provide a passport photo which must meet some requirements. Keep reading to know them!

Passport Photo for Icelandic Driving Licence: the requirements

As it has been said before, the photo for the driving licence must meet some official requirements. Summing them up, a correct and acceptable photograph:

  • must not exist in the collection of the driving license file,
  • resembles the applicants well (in the opinion of the district commissioner),
  • must show the head and the top of the shoulders,
  • is printed on photo paper,
  • is 35x45 mm in size,
  • the image of the head is 30 - 36 mm in height.

Moreover, the applicant must look straight at the camera, with his or her eyes open and the mouth closed (no smiles allowed!), and the oval of the face must be visible. Wearing glasses is allowed, but only if they don’t cover the applicant’s eyes (no sunglasses, no shaded or colored ones).

The requirements are many and difficult to follow, and you may think that only a professional photographer could take a perfect picture, right? Well, actually… we believe you can do it by yourself, and from home! How? With our passport photo app which can edit, resize and control that your picture meets all the requirements! If you don’t believe us, keep reading to know how our technology works.

Passport Photo Online: how does it work?

Passport Photo Online is definitely the best passport photo app you can find on the market: you can edit your photos without being a Photoshop expert! Here’s the steps you’ll need to follow: take as many photos as you want until you find the one you look best in, after you've chosen the document you need, upload it to our app or website and the magic begins! The Artificial Intelligence will edit the photo and check if all the requirements are met: it will crop and resize your photo, change the size and background to have a white background on your online passport photo. Use our photo editor and see the result yourself!

Passport Photo Online: how can I print the photo for my Icelandic Driving Licence?

If you are satisfied with the photo, all you have to do is print it! Our service offers you two possibilities depending on your needs.

  1. You can choose to pay just €4.99 to download the photos that have been previously edited and checked by our experts, and then you can go to your nearest digital photocopy and print center, or you can even print them at home if you have a professional printer (but remember, the photo must be printed in photo paper, it is a fundamental requirement!)
  2. You can have your photos delivered to your doorstep with the premium printing option for only €8.99: an expert will check that your passport photos meet the official requirements and will proceed to print the template that will be sent by post.

In both cases we offer you a refund guarantee if your driving license photo is rejected by the authorities - an unlikely scenario given the efficiency of our Artificial Intelligence tool and experts.
