In an attempt to streamline the driver’s license application and conversion process, the Ministry of Transportation’s Licensing Bureau has moved the process online and digitalized the ‘Tofes Yarok’. The physical ‘Tofes Yarok’ is no more.

For information and a step by step run down of the process, see our Driver’s License conversion page.

The new online form is in Hebrew only. We have created the guide below which you can follow for step-by-step instructions in English on how to apply for your Israeli Driver’s License.

Driver’s License Application

Personal Information and License Level

Before clicking on the Next Step button you are required to check off the first checkbox above which states that you know the contact information entered above will be used for the purpose of keeping you informed regarding the status of your reques/ A box will pop up asking you to enter an Israeli cellphone number which receives SMS messages in order to send you a confirmation code.

You will receive a confirmation code via SMS; enter the code and click on אישור.

After you click אישור (approve), you will be able to click on the Next Step button shown in the Personal Information window above.

Medical Questionnaire

Below is a list of medical related questions. Answer No in the left column if they do not apply, and Yes in the right column if they do. If you answer Yes, an additional question will appear requesting more details, such as if you are taking specific medication or when last you experienced an episode.

Please note: If the answer to any of the questions above is Yes, it is important to click yes and then supply a supporting doctor’s letter which clearly states that your condition &/or medication you take has no effect on your driving ability.

If you click Yes on any of the above questions, a drop down appears with the wording of the question you marked Yes on, and an option to upload a document.
We have provided an example below after the medical declaration.
If you mark Yes on more than one question, you will be required to upload a supporting doctor’s letter for each condition. There will be one attachment line per each time you mark Yes as the example shows below.
