Chip driving license is obtained by processing the driver information into the chip and placing it on the card. The biggest feature of this license is that it provides great convenience for the pursuit of criminals. Apart from that, these licenses are very difficult to imitate and thus the fake license frenzy can be prevented. There is all kinds of information on the chip, from driver identification information to vehicles that can be used, and this information can be read under UV light. The licenses are produced in accordance with EU standards, and after this period, it is not possible for the license to be valid for life. It must be renewed periodically.
