News from Brno

Applying for an ID card or driving licence with a prior order preferably

It is better to have a prior electronic order for a specific time to visit the Administrative Activities Department (ID cards, travel passports) and Transport Administrative Activities Department (driving licences, vehicle register). Without this prior electronic order citizens will be treated as well, but possible waiting time needs to be counted with. Prior arrangement of appointments is needed also at the Trade Licensing Office and we recommend it at all other departments, too. More information in the Authorities and Institutions section.
