General driving rights are defined as ‘B rights’ on driving licences and allow drivers to drive normal cars and various other vehicles.
- In order to obtain supplementary driving rights, such as the right to drive trucks, buses, trailers and commercial passenger transport vehicles, you need to apply for the relevant course at a driving school.
- Licenses to operate machinery are obtained from the Administration of Occupational Safety and Health.
- General driving licences are valid until the age of seventy, after which they must be regularly renewed.
- If more than two years elapse from the date the driving licence expires, a qualification test must be taken in order to renew it.
- Those whose driving licence has been taken from them for more than a year must retake their driving test.
- Beginners with a provisional licence who have had their licence taken from them or have received a driving ban must attend a special course and pass a driving test to get their driving licence back.
