Getting a driving licence in the EU – Lithuania
EU driving licences - conditions
Driver training driving test
To obtain a driving licence, you:
- must sign up with an approved driving school for at least 30 hours of practical training (for a category B licence)
- must pass a theory exam and a practical test held by the Lithuanian State Enterprise "Regitra"
There is no formal requirement for taught hours of driving theory, so this can either be learnt through self-study or through a driving school.
The minimum age at which you can obtain a driving licence is:
|Category A1 (up to 125 cc)||16 years|
|Category A2 (up to 35 kW cc)||18 years|
|Category A (over 35 kW cc)||20 years. However, to drive motorcycles inthis category you must have a minimum of 2 years' experience on motorcycles under an A2 licence. This requirement may be waived if the candidate is at least 24 years old.
The minimum age for motor tricycles exceeding 15 kW is fixed at 21 years.
|Category B (passenger cars)||18 years|
