Press conference by Siim Kallas, Vice-President of the EC, on the new European driving licence

Siim Kallas, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Transport, gave a press conference on the European Driving Licence Directive.
From 19 January 2013, all new driving licences issued across the EU will be in the form of a plastic "credit card," with a standard European format and tougher security protection. The new European licence will progressively replace the more than 100 different paper and plastic models currently in use by more than 300 million drivers across the EU. It is part of a broader package of measures (3rd EU Driving Licence Directive) coming into force designed to enhance free movement, tackle driving licence fraud and improve road safety across the EU.
