Additional information

When driving licences for categories B, C and C1 were first issued, licences for applicants who held a licence only for categories A1, A, B1 or T were issued with a period of validity of 2 years.

Category B1 is not indicated on page 2 of the driving licence.

The appearance of the driving licence was changed slightly in 2008 when Bulgaria and Romania joined the EU, in that the word "driving licence" in Bulgarian and Romanian was added.

A holder of a category T driving licence is authorised to drive category M vehicles.
