Looks like Europe is going to consolidate drivers license.
I hope so. We certainly need some type of mutual traffic enforcement. Folks from other countries drive with impunity here because they know there is no way they can be penalised.
Plus, my Irish licence is huge, about the size of half a full sheet of paper (lengthwise) then folded in thirds.
No problem with this one.
It is probably a great idea.
Makes sense. Have you been to Europe lately?
Traveling between countries is like going to Wal-Mart to get a gallon of milk. Its pretty easy. Last time I was over there we drove through three countries in one day getting from one destination to the next. They need to consolidate.
Next comes the international ID/drivers' lic.
International drivers license are not valid without a valid state/country license
But as far as the OP - anybody know the latest?
I thought this was already in place. Missionary friends of ours in France have only one card that serves as drivers license and insurance and ID. I was under the impression that they used it wherever they traveled. It was the size of a standard USA drivers license. That was at least 5 years ago.
I note that The Europeans segregate driving with a trailer at 750 Kg...
This is a good Idea!
Many people rent a trailer and have no idea of how to pack it, or what changes in drivability it makes on a vehicle.
So, IMHO, you should need a license that shows you know how to handle a heavier trailer load.
Not only a trailer, but anything over a 10 foot truck
The UK and Ireland still use national driving licenses. I know that for a fact. I am pretty sure Germany does as well.
I live in an EU state and have never heard of a Europe wide license. That doesn't mean it does not exist, just that I have never heard of it.
Just looked. It appears they will be phased in from 2012-2032.
