Short-term driving licence

The first car driving licence is initially issued for only two years (short-term car driving licence). The driving test examiner issues the short-term driving licence after an accepted pass of a driving test. Before being issued a permanent driving licence the holder of a short-term driving licence must complete the further driver training prescribed in law. This can be done no sooner than six months from obtaining a short-term driving licence. A certificate of this further training must be submitted to the police. The police will then issue a permanent driving licence, but no earlier than six months before the expiry of the short-term licence. The short-term driving licence must be surrendered to the police in exchange for the permanent driving licence.
