Driving licences expired during the state of emergency can be used as valid

If your driving licence expires during the state of emergency announced from 5 October, you do not have to hurry to the municipality. You can use the expired licence as if it was valid for the whole duration of the state of emergency. We recommend you to make an electronic order for the appointment to apply for a new one. Although dates are available for later time only, the exchange of driving licence is not so urgent now and by reserving your date you can avoid possible lengthy queueing. The reservation can be done here (system in Czech only). More information can be found at the Ministry of Transport website (in English). This measure does not apply to identity cards.
