Road Transport: New European Driving Licence

From January 19th 2013, all new driving licences issued across the EU will be in the form of a plastic "credit card," with a standard European format and tougher security protection. The new European licence will progressively replace the more than 100 different paper and plastic models currently in use by more than 300 million drivers across the EU. It is part of a broader package of measures (3rd EU Driving Licence Directive) coming into force designed to enhance free movement, tackle driving licence fraud and improve road safety across the EU.

I'm aware that a good amount of countries already have this "credit card" format, but Ireland for some reason wanted to stay with the old fashion licence until now.

We've had it for ages now. Still have a paper section but the card part is the same as silverlux posted, only uk instead of latvia obviously. I think it's been in for more than 10 years

Yeah, in Portugal they've been using the new format for quite a while also.
