Under proposals from the European Commission, a new EU driving licence is proposed. This will allow for the following:
Accompanied driving for learner drivers as of 17.
Zero drink-driving tolerance for novice drivers.
Green transition: the permitted mass of a ‘B’ category vehicle will be increased for zero-emission vehicles as they are heavier.
Measures to ensure drivers who break road rules in other EU Member States face the consequences.
EU-wide digital driving licence: a world first, the EU will have an e-licence valid across borders.
Tests that prepare future drivers for real-life roads, e.g. for sharing roads with cyclists, e-scooters, etc and automated driving.
European Commission March 2023
