Whatever you call it, drivers license, driving licence, drivinglicense, etc., etc... By using a foreign EU licence you can usuallyget away from speeding cameras, parking fines, motorway fees etc.Combine it with driving a foreign car and you will really be treatedlike a tourist, all fines from infractions in driving laws are lostin the EU post to your mailbox in a foreign country. Even insuranceis cheaper than the UK, the car is insured in eastern Europe (notthe driver like UK), but the insurance certificate is still validfor UK use (it has to be by EU rules).
