No, only the Slovenian driver's license suffices in Slovenia, not Austrian.

Hmm, let's think, my worst border issue: I crossed the Dutch-German border without any ID. If they ever find out I guess that I'll be locked up for 40 years

At least you were aware of the border. I, OTOH, thought Zagreb was in Slovenia.

I often enter CRO without being checked when entering from SLO at the check point near Sečovlje - just a hand waving and "Sretan put". On the other hand, when entering Croatia from Serbia the ID card check is compulsory.

You misunderstood me. My question was if the Slovenian driver's license is also an ID, ie equivalent to a passport when traveling around within the Schengen area.

No driver license functions as a valid Schengen ID...only special national ID cards are ok for that.

Thats why I asked for clarification. But why is there no driver license that equally functions as national ID card?

Actually, a drivers licence is enough as ID within the Netherlands. I never carry my passport with me within NL, but always my DL.

Yes, but it's not valid outside of the Netherlands (except maybe in the rest of Benelux), that's what we're talking about. I think we're whirling.

Well,then whats the point of it at all? A driver licence is valid all over the planet(AFAIK),and if it is equals an ID in a country,why isnt it good in an other? And this is especially true in the EU,where all such documents/cards are standardised,so the same...

Well they are not quite the same... In some countries you have the big rose sheet, and in others the driving licence is just a small card.

Poland:

National ID card - suitable for Schengen travel




Driver's licence - cannot cross Schengen borders using it alone

Those pink sheets are old. (I have them too), and the new card is a new system which should be implemented in all EU countries.

We have the same model for ID card and driving licence in Bulgaria, but in France and many other EU countries the driving licence looks like this:



P.S: Chris, I thought it was up to the country to choose one of the models...

I think that this is what the old Dutch DL looked like as well. A new DL looks like a creditcard.
