Vienna Agreement Driving License
Autor: Anna Pilsniak. Kategorie: Bez kategorii .
Prior to March 29, 2011, the Convention called on contracting parties to recognize the recognition of driving on their territory: Article 41 „Driver`s Licence” Vienna Convention on Road Traffic 1968: to be valid, the displaced person must be accompanied by a valid driver`s license issued in the applicant`s country of residence. It is not necessary to do so if the national driver`s licence system meets the requirements of the 1949 or 1968 convention; the national licence may be used directly in a foreign jurisdiction that is a party to this agreement.  In addition, in some countries, other regulations remove the need for a type of internally displaced persons, such as the European driver`s licence in force in the European Economic Area.B. (ii) any international authorisation in accordance with the requirements of Schedule 7 of this Convention, provided that it is presented with the corresponding national driving licence, valid on its territory for the operation of the vehicle corresponding to the category or categories of vehicles for which certificates are were issued, provided that these identities were valid and issued by another contracting party or by one of its territorial subdivisions or by a Union duly authorised by the contracting party; These countries agreed that they would recognize the international driver`s licence on their territory. So you feel free to go to these countries, but remember to take with me and national law, because without them, the international license is not valid. All written above is very nice and convenient for Russian travelers, owners of national rights. But in practice, there are discrepancies with this theory. Some countries have not ratified the Vienna Convention, despite its signature, and continue to stubbornly demand international law to drive, or even to recognize the right only on its territory. However, these legal requirements and procedures, contrary to international law, are doomed to fail, but such a situation is still present, especially in Europe. Sometimes the problem can be solved on the street or at the police station and proven innocent by references to international law. But there`s another problem.
„Rolling” Bureau may deny you a rental car if you don`t have international rights, because it`s up to them to give that a car, and who isn`t, and no international laws they don`t. An international driver`s license is required in addition to certain driver`s licenses. If you are not sure that your driver`s licence can be used in Norway without additional documentation, we recommend that you obtain an international driver`s licence in accordance with the Geneva or Vienna Conventions (grey book with white pages) before your arrival date. These countries therefore recognize, by signing the convention on their territory, all national driver`s licenses that meet certain requirements. In most cases, driving a car or motorbike in these countries can only be properly reviewed and obtained local rights; either upon receipt of a special authorization by the approved body that presents a national driver`s licence; or perhaps the use of national rights, as well as a certified translation. There are other options, but it is necessary to find out for each country. One of the main advantages of the convention for motorists is the requirement for signatory states to recognize the legality of vehicles from other signatory countries. The following conditions must be met when driving outside the country of registration: but haste to evade traffic police under international law, because the question is whether you need an international driver`s license. Here you have to make a small clarification: 28.03.2006 year, the format of national identity, recognized on the territory of other countries, has been changed. The main difference is that the driver`s licence data (line) must now be numbered in a certain order. The Member States of the Convention were given five years (i.e.
until 28.03.2011) on aligning their national identity with the new format.
