As of 1 January 2021 all previously acquired driving licenses will have a term of five years. By completing the “apron driving license refresher” course, this term can be extended by five years from the completion date.
The limited term is based on Regulations (EC) No 1108/2009 and No 139/2014 (additionally in Annex IV, Subpart B, ADR.OPS.B.024).
On successful completion of the course, you will receive a certificate as evidence of completion. You will receive the valid apron driving license (thus extended) by post. This happens automatically and requires no action on your part.
