The requirements to obtain a driving licence will be revised. The aim is to reduce regulation and enable alternative methods of driver education. The aim is also to reduce driving licence expenses. The proposed legislative amendments would support the Government's deregulation objectives.

- Finland's strict regulation on driver education has become an obstacle for the introduction of new training and learning methods. The legislative reform will provide means for tailored training, access to information and use of digitalisation, says Minister of Transport and Communications Anne Berner.
