Apply for the extension of the driving license of categories A1 or A2 by the next higher category

Description

If you have held the A1 or A2 driving license for at least 2 years, passing the practical test is sufficient to obtain the extension from A1 to A2 or from A2 to A (advancement). A theoretical test is not necessary.

The class A1 driving license entitles you to drive motorcycles (also with sidecars) with a cubic capacity of up to 125 cubic centimeters, an engine power of no more than 11 kW, where the ratio of power to weight does not exceed 0.1 kW/kg, and three-wheeled motor vehicles with symmetrically arranged wheels and a cubic capacity of more than 50 cubic centimeters for internal combustion engines or a maximum design speed of more than 45 km/h and with a power of up to 15 kW.

The class A2 driving license entitles you to drive motorcycles (including those with sidecars) with a maximum engine power of 35 kW and a power-to-weight ratio of no more than 0.2 kW/kg that are not derived from a motorcycle with an engine power of more than 70 kW. With the class A2, the classes A1 and AM are included.

The class A driving license entitles you to drive motorcycles (including those with sidecars) with an engine capacity of more than 50 cubic centimeters or with a maximum speed determined by the design of more than 45 km/h and three-wheeled motor vehicles with a power output of more than 15 kW and three-wheeled motor vehicles with symmetrically arranged wheels and an engine capacity of more than 50 cubic centimeters for internal combustion engines or a maximum speed determined by the design of more than 45 km/h and with a power output of more than 15 kW.

If the driver's license is sent directly to the home address, an additional shipping fee will be charged.

The practical driving test must be taken within 12 months of passing the theory test. The driving license must be handed over within 2 years after passing the practical test. Otherwise, the test loses its validity.

The practical test for the extension of class A1 to class A2 or class A2 to class A may be taken at the earliest one month before the expiry of the period of 2 years after the previous driving license was issued or when the minimum age is reached.
