Types of driving licences
Professional Driving Licence (Code 95)
If you have a driving licence for a category C (lorry), CE (combination of vehicles), or D (bus), then this gives you the right to drive the vehicles but does not allow you to work as a professional driver. For the latter, you must pass another 140 hours of professional training in addition to a driving course. This includes both theory and practice. Among all else, the following topics are covered during the course:
- the rules for the working and rest time of a driver
- fastening cargo
- correct cargo documentation
- responsibility of the driver when transporting cargo
After completing the training, Code 95 is added to your driving licence, indicating your competence as a professional driver. In the future, you must complete professional trainings regularly, albeit on a smaller scale – 35 hours of further training every five years.
