Croatia warned about failing to connect to RESPER

The European Commission on Thursday sent an opinion warning Croatia about its failure to get connected to the  RESPER network of European Union driving license information system.

This network enables, for instance, checking whether a person has a driver's licence in some other member-state of the block, and thus making abuses impossible.

Apart from Croatia, Cyprus, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Portugal and Sweden have also been warned about incomplete implementation of the driver's license directive.

The countries concerned have two months to notify the Commission of measures they are taking to adjust the national legislation to the European standards.
