An Ascension Island driving licence is required for individuals staying on Ascension Island for three months or more.
A non-Ascension licence is valid for up to three months after arrival on the island, at which time individuals must apply for and purchase a valid licence. It is possible to purchase a driving licence that lasts for either one or two years.
For unlicenced drivers an application for a provisional licence and driving exam may be made with the Post Office.
To transport unlicensed vehicles or vehicles without a valid MOT individuals must obtain a valid cover note from the Post Office.
