The Impact of Different Legislations Regarding Driving Licence Duration on Traffic Safety in Selected European Countries

A driving license entitles the holder to operate the vehicle of a relevant category on any road. The way of obtaining a driving permit is rather consistent throughout Europe, however each Member State can decide upon the duration of the driving license and upon its renewal process. In the present paper, the author first checks the applicable legislation and regulations in selected European countries in regards to driving license duration. Then she examines participation of elderly drivers in traffic accidents in Slovenia as well as in other European countries and finally gives an overview of the impact of different approaches to driving license duration on road safety.
