  1. Hi,

    Thanks

  2. However, the normal residence of a person whose occupational ties are in a different place from his personal ties and who consequently lives in turn in different places situated in two or more Member States shall be regarded as being the place of his personal ties, provided that such person returns there regularly. This last condition need not be met where the person is living in a Member State in order to carry out a task of a definite duration. The license has to be made of paper or plastic. For plastic driving licenses, the 54 x 86 mm format should be applied. Their colour should be pink.

  3. Hi,
    I have 13 years driving experience so I was wondering what is the minimum practical lessons?

  4. Hey !
