31 March 2022: DLE ROUND TABLE: Response to EC Public Consultation on Driving Licence issuance and mutual recognition

The Commission will carry out the revision of the current Directive on driving licences adopted in 2006, with the aim of improving road safety and facilitating free movement. The new initiative will take into account new challenges for mobility, in particular in the field of digital and will contribute to the EU’s objectives laid down in the 2020 Smart and Sustainable Mobility strategy.

On 25 February, DG Move launched a Public Consultation and asks stakeholders to contribute by means of a survey published on the European Commission’s 'Have your say' portal. The deadline to submit the responses to this Public Consultation is 20 May 2022 (Midnight Brussels time).

Given the short time window, the CIECA Secretariat has tried to set up a series of events that will help to shape CIECA’s consolidated response that will be informed by contributions from all CIECA members. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all CIECA members that have accepted to help to compile these responses. You can consult the questionnaire included in the Public Consultation here.  

As of today, it is possible to register in the following events:

29 March 2022 – FTD Round Table: Response to EC Public Consultation on fit to drive issues.

31 March 2022 – DLE Round Table: Response to EC Public Consultation on DL issuance and mutual recognition.

5 April 2022 - EAG Webinar: Response to EC Public Consultation on training, testing, and vehicle categories.
