Probationary period:

The first driving entitlement is granted for a probationary period. The probationary period is 2 years and starts from the licence issue date. If a new driving entitlement is being granted or if its scope is being extended to those who were granted the driving entitlement or extension of its scope before reaching the age of 18, a new 2-year probationary period always begins under the conditions laid down for the first driving entitlement.

The current probationary period expires, even if 2 years have not elapsed. This probationary period must not be counted in the new probationary period.

 

 

Professional drivers

    • Certificate of professional competence is issued : YES
    • Code 95 is marked on the driving licence : NO

    Additional information

    Driving licence "Model SK1" is valid until 31/12/2023.

    By 01/01/2004, the text “probationary period” was recorded in the chart “Additional Records” on the back of the driving licence. The probationary period of two years was counted from the date of issue of the driving licence. Some such driving licences had, therefore, a limited validity of two years recorded in paragraph 7 (see definition of the “probationary period” in characteristics of the national codes and additional information and restrictions). After replacing such a driving licence, no validity was recorded in the new document. All categories are valid for life.

    In Slovakia, the driver to whom Directive 2003/59/EC applies is given a certificate of professional competence and a driver qualification card with code 95.
