Turkey implemented the first smart card driver’s license system in 1987. Turkey had a high level of road accidents and decided to develop and use digital tachograph devices on heavy vehicles, instead of the existing mechanical ones, to reduce speed violations. Since 1987, the professional driver’s licenses in Turkey have been issued as smart cards. A professional driver is required to insert his driver’s license into a digital tachograph before starting to drive. The tachograph unit records speed violations for each driver and gives a printed report.
