Additional information

To distinguish this licence from the FIN4A licence, the table on the reverse side of FIN4B includes the national class M and features an updated version of the registration authority's logo.

Right to drive a T-class vehicle is included in all other classes except in M/AM-class. Class T is not recorded on the driving licence if other vehicle classes that include T are already recorded. It may only be recorded on the driving licence if the licence holder has separately passed a class T driving test.

The first category B licence was issued for 2 years. After 2 years, the next category B licence was issued until the holder reached 70.
