The European Commission has published the final report plus annex about the implementation of Directive 2006/126/EC on driving licences, better known as the 3rd Driving Licence Directive (3DLD).
The third Directive on driving licences entered into force in January 2013. It provides harmonised rules aimed at enhancing drivers’ freedom to move, reducing the possibility of driving licence fraud and improving road safety in the EU.
The study explores the implementation of the third Directive on driving licences in Member States four years after implementation and assesses whether the introduced novelties contributed to achieving the objectives set by the Directive. An assessment of the effects of the novelties introduced by the Directive was performed by combining the findings of desk research, expert interviews and stakeholders consultation. Given the scarcity of available literature, the assessment of effects is based in large extent on expert interviews and stakeholder consultations.
