Some locals and tourists ride without a Vietnamese motorbike licence in Vietnam. In most country’s you will have certain people riding on the roads who are unlicenced.

Hence the reason why some people are unlicenced riders here in Vietnam.

Is it really worth taking the risk to ride without a Vietnamese motorbike licence in Vietnam? Personally I would not do it.

Penalties range from heavy fines, bikes been impounded and even jail time is possible. If there was to be a serious accident your travel insurance may not cover you depending on the terms and conditions of your agreement.
