Drivers will no longer be required to carry licence with them

Take note – story published 4 years ago

On April 25 the Latvian parliament adopted a bill that inter alia allows drivers to leave their driving licences at home and instead show their passports or ID cards instead.

The regulation was introduced to reduce the administrative onus faced by the police. Before, drivers could be fined up to €3 for not carrying their licence.

At the same time, the new law allows scooters and motorcycles use the public transport lane. This change is to be implemented by July 31. 

It also features minor changes that make work easier for the Border Guard and the military.
