LDrivers whose driving license in the European format expires or is about to expire after the ten-year validity period will receive a letter from the FPS Mobility inviting them to renew the document, the Minister for Mobility, Georges Gilkinet, in response to a question from Vincent Scourneau (MR).

Laminated permits in the format of an identity card are valid for ten years. They were introduced in 2013. Next year, the validity of the first copies will therefore expire. From 2023, some 425,000 people will receive an invitation to renew their driving licence. In addition, by 2033, paper permits will have to be replaced by a permit in European format. The millions of holders of this permit in paper format will be gradually invited to replace it from next year in order to avoid an administrative bottleneck in 2032.
