The new EU driving licence rules are part of the Road safety package presented by the Commission in March 2023 to improve safety for all road users, facilitate cross-border enforcement of traffic rules, and modernise driving licence rules. The ultimate goal is to move as close as possible to zero fatalities in EU road transport by 2050 ("Vision Zero").
