Drivers of motor vehicles or bicycles may not travel on roads covered by traffic, motor vehicle traffic and road safety legislation if they have a blood alcohol level of more than 0.5 grams per litre, or breath alcohol level of more than 0.25 milligrams per litre.
Cyclists also have an alcohol limit like other motor vehicle drivers. When sharing the road with other vehicles, they are considered to be drivers, so they must respect the alcohol levels established for all drivers.
When a driver obtains a Class B driving licence, if they have previously had a permit for more than two years; for AM, A1, A2 or A, the rate would be 0.25mg / l, as for the first two years after obtaining the preVious licence the rate was 0.15mg / l
This seniority will also be applied once the new permit has been obtained, if you have had one before, and you should NOT show the V-13 sign that accredits you as a new driver.
In the case of vehicles used for the transport of goods with a maximum authorised weight of more than 3,500 kgs, vehicles used for the transport of passengers with more than nine seats, or public service vehicles, school transport or transport of minors, dangerous goods vehicles, or emergency services or special transport, drivers may not operate with a blood alcohol level of more than 0.3 grams per litre, or a breath alcohol level of more than 0.15 milligrams per litre.
Drivers of any vehicle must not have a blood alcohol level of more than 0.3 grams per litre nor a breath alcohol level of more than 0.15 milligrams per litre for the two years immediately following the date of acquisition of the permit or licence that enables them to drive.
Only the antiquity of the licence will be taken into account when specialised licences are involved.
