In Slovakia you have to wait for 2 days up to 3 weeks and office where you have to go to get it is open 3 times a week for 5 hours or so.

Tomorrow I'm leaving for the extreme tip of Italian paeninsula... Brescia-Reggio Calabria non-stop. 1200 km of autostrad-y goodness

I'm jealous Calabria is a place I want to visit some time. It's a long haul from the Netherlands, over 2000 kilometers.

I have mixed feelings about this. Calabria has a very bad reputation in Italy for what concerns crime, even worse than Sicily's. I'm not sure I will take pictures of the roads (but for that there's always the Italian A3 thread here on SSC, one of the most active), but for sure I will take landscapes

Anyway I'll just try and stay out of troubles...

In Poland - yep, that bureaucratic Poland - I waited 10 days and office in county council is opened from Monday to Friday, 5-9 hours.

I did that trip in 2005 (starting from Milan) non-stop with the van, just bit longer cause i had to deliver in Melilli, near Siracusa. I remember that Calabria was the slowest and most impegnative section of the entire trip, with road works every few kilometers and often swap of carriageway. Tiring and annoying. I hope now the things are better there.... The most beautiful part for me it was approaching Villa San Giovanni: it was already dark when I arrived and from the highway I could see the Sicily and calabrian coast with all lights on the Strait of Messina. It was really impressive! I didn't have my camera but just my phone with me, so I took only few pics unfortunately. Just a couple

Landscape in Calabria


Pizzo Calabro (or town close to it) seen from the highway's viaduct (no idea which)

Congrats keokiracer Now ChrisZwolle can't drive anymore because you are also on the road... and who knows how you drive

After I got my license I should have, in theory, waited 3-4 days untill I got that plastic. Instead, I drove starting with the afternoon after I got my license and everything was ok. Nobody stopped me, but if they would have stopped me I would have at most got a fine for not having the license in my pocket to show it to the officers.

A few years ago you could go by train from Trieste to Palermo for 30 euros.

In the UK you can drive immediately because you don't have to have your licence on you, you swap your Provisional for your proper one and it comes back in the post after a few days

You will likely adopt the European credit card-size license in the next years.

I have a little EU-type card and an A4 paper that are only valid as a licence together, but as said, I wouldn't need them on me to drive in the UK so it's not as inconvenient as it might sound

It's not as far as it seems. I have done Manchester-Abrantes twice a week for a month in a curtain-sider van.
