The ZFER covers all driving licences issued since 1 January 1999 with the uniform European driving licence categories A to E.
With the introduction of these classes, mutual unrestricted recognition of the EU driving licence applies in the member states of the European Union (EU). This means that, in principle, there is no obligation to exchange licences even if the driver moves to another Member State.
