Regulation 484/2002/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council amending Council Regulations (EEC) No. 881/92 and (EEC) No. 3118/93 for the purposes of establishing a uniform Driver Attestation came into force on 19 March 2003. Under this regulation, the driver of a vehicle engaged in the carriage of goods subject to a Community Licence (as regards international transport) and who is a national of a non-member country employed by a haulage operator from a Member State must now also hold a Driver Attestation.
Irish haulage operators who employ non-EU drivers will now have to apply to the Road Transport Operator Licensing Unit for a Driver Attestation form in respect of these drivers to allow them to drive in other EU countries.
The Driver Attestation Application Form is available to download below.
