Issue of licencesEdit
- Aethelnia — national driving licenses are issued by the federal authorities, with seperate permissions for cars, vans, light trucks, trucks, heavy trucks, roadtrains, busses, coaches, taxis, motor bikes, scooters. Violation of traffic rules results in penalty points. Once the max number of penalty points for your type of driver's license is fullfilled, the license is revoked. One may hold several driving license types at the same time.
- Allacoa — A Motor Vehicle Operators License (MVOL) is issued by the government to any citizen over the age of 14 who has completed a mandatory four-hour course at a government-run or privately-licenses LEC.

- Xochimechatl — driving licences are issued separately by each jurisdiction, with an agreement existing that licences issued by one will be recognised by all others. Enforcement tends to be poor, however, and many people drive without licences. Motorcycles do not need licences if they are under a certain engine power (the exact limit varies), with motorcycles over that power covered by regular licences.
Many countries place restrictions on the age at which people may drive (or learn to drive).
