The European Commission has requested Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Cyprus, Germany, Denmark, Estonia, Ireland, Spain, France, Finland, Italy, Lithuania, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia and Slovenia to correctly implement the EU Directive on driving licences (Directive 2006/126/EC ). These updated rules on driving licences have introduced among others new driving licence categories, a harmonised validity of the driving licence document and established a network to exchange driving licence information (RESPER). These new rules will help reduce the possibility of fraud, guarantee the freedom of movement for EU drivers and reinforce safety on European roads.
