  • 1. Road Signs
  • 2. Relevant differences can be seen between countries’ road signs. Most European countries refer to the 1968 Vienna Convention on Road Signs and Signals which is an international treaty designed to increase road safety and support international road traffic by standardising the signing system for road traffic. This convention was agreed upon by the United Nations Economic and Social Council at its Conference on Road Traffic in Vienna in 1968 and came into force 10 years later in 1978.
  • 3. In Europe the driving signs are unified, only little difference can be seen. The most recognisable differences are the graphical and colouring variations (for example we usually use white background on warning signs but Finland and Poland uses yellow) but there are differences in meanings, too.

  • 14. Licence categories and special examinations
  • 15. We distinguish different types of driver’s license in everyday life. The first is „A1” which is „light motorcycles”. For this you don’t need complicated tests just the most basic ones like: Transport knowlegde=KRESZ, Vehicle handling=RUTIN, Traffic driving=FORGALMI

  • 18. The fourth category is „C1” which includes all the trucks not heavier than 7500 kg. The main exams are: Theoretical exam: Fundamentals of transport, occupational safety, fire protection, transportation and loading. Practice: Safety inspection and maintenance, routine, traffic exams. The „C” category covers more thing. You need to be older than 17 years old, you need a certificate about 8 years of primary education and you must have a valid license for category „B”. The basic tests you need: Driving Theory Structural and operational knowledge Security control and operation

You need to be more than 21 years old, have a valid driving license of category „B” and a certificate of elementary education. You will have to take an exam of Safety Knowledge. The next one is category „D”. This category includes all buses and heavy trailers. You need a valid license for category „B” and „C”, you have to be more than 20 years old and need to have at least an elementary education to get a license in this category.
  • 20. The „E” category has the most side branches. Vehicle and heavy trailer can only be issued as a combined category. a) „B + E”: "B" category vehicles, and heavy trailers. You must have: elementary education, minimum 2 years of valid driving license for class "B” and you have to be older than 18 years old. b) „C1 + E”: Vehicles, and heavy trailers, and all the vehicles lighter than 12,000 kg, and the trailer’s weight not exceeding the towing vehicle's own weight.
