Morning.
Iím sure this question has been asked already but I couldnít find a thread.
Is it becoming law for residents to change UK driving license to Cypriot ?
If it is, do I have to surrender my UK licence and which office do I go to.
Thank You.

It has always been the law (well, at least for the past 15 years and probably longer) that if you live here, you are required to change your driver's license to a Cypriot one. You have to wait until you have been here for 6 months and then make the change. And yes, you surrender your current driver's license.

Take your residency documents, two passport photos and completed
form to the MOT office/Department of Transport office in Dherynia.

You can find the form & translations here:

Just adding this to the thread:

As I understand it, it is a legal requirement in the UK to notify the issuers of any change of any change of address, but if you are resident in Cyprus they will not issue one to your address - so you need to change to a Cypriot license.

Just to correct matters a little, you do NOT have to take your own photographs with you as they take a digital picture at the Transport office.
