The EU will hit all Danish drivers with a new correcard rule

If it goes as the EU wants it to, it will be the end of choir cards that are valid for a very long time. The EU will introduce strictures in the choir card area, which have not been done since 2006.

The EU has not looked at the choir card regulations in the union's member states since 2006. But it no longer has to be that way.

As Boosted has previously told, the EU is planning a number of very concrete strictures in the choir card area. Among other things, very young drivers will be banned from driving all day. Read more about it here .

But now RTE , which is Ireland's answer to Denmark's Radio, writes that the EU is also considering banning choir cards that are valid 'for life'.

Until 2013, it was the case in Denmark that a driver's license was valid until the day the driver turned 70. It has since been changed to only have a validity of 15 years.

But now the EU wants drivers to pass a new medical examination every fifteen years in order to keep their driving license at all.

Right now this kind of thing is otherwise only reserved for commercial drivers and older drivers (those over 70, ed.). And here the validity is a maximum of 5 years at a time.

With the new bill, the EU will force all drivers' license holders for cars, motorcycles and tractors to go for a medical check-up every 15 years.

The proposal, which has not yet become law, is part of the EU's goal that no one should be allowed to doze on European roads by 2050.

According to the French member of the EU Parliament, Karima Delli, the law should not bother motorists. But the medical examinations must be 'free' and 'simple'.

However, Delli's colleague in the EU Parliament, Jean-Paul Garraud, calls the proposal 'restrictive' and an economic burden for motorists.

The French Automobile Club de France, which belongs to the motorsport organization FIA, directly calls the proposal hostile to motorists.
