From drivers from EU / EAA no need.
In case other countries, generally no as long as the Croatian Police can read and understand your license (for example we won’t accept licenses written in Chinese, Thai, Arabic, Cyrillic etc etc), BUT… theoretically you should not drive without one if your license is from outside the EU/EEA. The police is very lenient about it, but the ticket is potentially very expensive (€350), so it’s a risk that you decide if you would like to take or not as we are not responsible for the tickets.

You are responsible for all traffic violations.
Any ticket caused by client is charged by deposit.
