- There will be changes in driver training and driving examinations as of the beginning of July. The legislative amendments will make the use of, for example, new, alternative training and learning methods possible. The number of compulsory lessons will decrease as the focus of the examination will grow. The amendments will apply to licences other than those for driving lorries, buses and coaches.
- Several legislative amendments that increase information security of services essential to society and foster cooperation between authorities concerning information security enter into force on 9 May 2018. The amendments aim to increase the level of trust by people and businesses towards digital modes of operation and raise the level of information security in the entire society. The amendments will implement the EU directive on security of network and information systems (NIS directive) in Finland.
- Instead of driving, walk or ride a bicycle for short trips. This is the message of the “I move, therefore I am” campaign. Nearly a quarter of all trips shorter than a kilometre are made by car, and the figure is 60 per cent for trips two to three kilometres long. The Ministry of Transport and Communications supports the promotion of walking and cycling also through the Society’s Commitment to Sustainable Development.
