European driving license

— filed under:

The second EU driving licence directive 91/439/EEC is governed by two major principles: to facilitate the free movement of the citizens of the Community and contribute to the improvement of road traffic safety. With regard to the free movement of citizens, EU Directive 91/439/EEC introduced the principle of mutual recognition of driving licences issued by the Member States. The Community model driving licence was established by Directive 80/1263/EEC in order to facilitate comprehension and the mutual recognition of licences by the authorities of the Member States. With regard to road safety, Directive 91/439/EEC harmonised categories of driving licence; conditions for the issue of a driving licence; minimum ages for the various categories; driving tests; minimum standards of physical and mental fitness.
