The validity of the driving licenses and technical control sheets (KTEO) is extended until 30 April. This means that any bulletin expires may not be renewed until then. It will not be considered out of time and will not be fined. Only trucks and buses that perform international transport are excluded and are therefore controlled by other states. The aim is to avoid overcrowding in the KTEOs. The Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport urges citizens not to leave their homes specifically to go to the KTEOs and not to be crowded with other drivers there. Specific instructions have also been given to private and public KTEOs to avoid overcrowding. In addition, there will be no examinations of candidates for private KTEOs scheduled for March 30th.
They are also suspended until April 30, all theoretical and practical exams for driving licenses, cease to be theoretical and practical courses, and all driving licenses are valid until the same date. Only drivers with international transport and who need to review their licenses are necessarily exempt from this measure.
The Civil Aviation Authority is taking steps to keep the country’s airports open. Critical services, that is, the control tower and the air traffic control, will operate normally for security reasons, while the non-critical ones will operate as of today, with 50% of staff under the virus prevention measures.
The Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport now operates with 50% of staff, a percentage that will be reduced if needed, and is no longer open to the public.
