For how long are Armenian rights issued?

Driving licenses in Armenia are issued for a period of 10 years. After the expiration date, the driver's license becomes invalid. To restore, you need to go through the procedure for obtaining rights again.

Is it possible to exchange the rights of the Russian Federation for the rights of Armenia?

This also applies to citizens of the Republic of Belarus and other countries of the Vienna Convention.
It is not necessary to exchange the rights, but there is such an opportunity in Armenia.
The deadline for the exchange of rights is one month before their expiration. All categories will remain. You don't need to take an exam. The exchange takes 2-4 months:
  1. The traffic police of Armenia sends a request to the Russian Federation.
  2. He is waiting for an answer that the rights are legal, the driver is not deprived of them.
  3. Replaces rights. At the same time, Russian rights lose their legal force.

If you have obtained RA citizenship, then you will no longer be able to use Russian rights.
