Additional information

As a distinguishing feature from the FIN4C driving licence, the background print on the front of the FIN4D licence features also the words "driving licence" in the languages of the countries that joined the European Union in 2007.

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.

Upper age limits for group 2 licences changed on 1 February 2010: until 70: ≥68 - 2 years

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.
