Cyprus Gets Drivers License Upgrade

NICOSIA – If you are a driver in Cyprus, you need to carry a large sheet of paper that is usually folded and must be taken care of gently so that it does not tear or otherwise mar. But no more! As of June 29, Cypriots will get plastic drivers’ licenses, just like most of the rest of the modern world, including the rest of the EU, Sigmalive reported.

Existing licenses are not affected, but will be changed to the new format at the time of renewal by 2033 at the latest, in the EU area, Sigmalive reported.
In addition to superior durability, a primary goal of these new licenses will be to replace them regularly, Minister of Transport, Communication and Works Marios Demetriades said, in order to ensure that they are updated with motorists’ most recent information.
