Additional information

To distinguish it from the FIN4D licence, the OVI print in the bottom-right corner on the front of FIN4D has been replaced with a changeable laser image and an updated version of the registration authority's logo, on the reverse side.

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

From 19 January 2013, class A covers class A2, unless a period of 2 years has expired. Otherwise, it covers class A if the licence has been issued before the date in question.

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.
