The objective of this project is to provide a comprehensive overview and better insight on the different aspects of Directive 2006/126/EC on driving licences, especially the impact on road safety and the novelties introduced with the Directive. For this purpose, all aspects regarding the union model licence will be analysed, especially whether and to what extent its aims were achieved. Then the effect of administrative validity and medical checks on road safety in the EU Member States will be analysed. Modifications of driving licence categories introduced by Directive 2006/126/EC will also be examined. Existing standards on driving examiners in Member States will be reviewed in terms of compliance to the Directive 2006/126/EC. An overview and analysis of the effect of the use of RESPER in the EU member states will then be provided. A comprehensive consultation of relevant stakeholders will be conducted with respect to what they consider to be the main problems that EU Member States face in the compliance with Directive 2006/126/EC and proposed best practices to reduce those problems. The output from all previous tasks will be synthesized and translated into policy recommendations for the EU.
