Andor Deli, Fidesz EP representative from Vojvodina, sent a summary of the draft report and its expected effects to the newspaper, in which he writes: “separate selection of the category B+ license from the single category B would mean that European citizens would have to obtain two licenses in order to have full rights for driving passenger vehicles”. According to him, this would also double the costs.
The division of category AB driving license into categories B and B+ would result in many restrictions for the holders of category B driving license, such as
- 110 km/h maximum permitted speed on motorways,
- the weight limit of 1.8 tons for drivable vehicles.
According to the proposal, obtaining a separate B+ driving license would be mandatory for driving vehicles weighing between 1.8 and 3.5 tons.
In July, the Minister of Construction and Transport János Lázár also spoke about the fact that, in his opinion, a revision of the KRESZ was necessary and the conditions for obtaining a category B driving license should also be revised. We wrote about this in detail here:
