Questions and answers

Why does a 10-15-year-old child get a bicycle subsidy? 

At this age, children increasingly begin to move independently, and when riding a bicycle on the road, this age group must have a cyclist driving license. Since cyclist driving licenses are issued proportionally less in Tallinn compared to other municipalities, the goal is to increase the proportion of traffic-aware young cyclists in traffic. 

Where can I get a cyclist driving license? 

To take the bike riding exam during the summer months, you can go to the Tallinn office of the Transport Administration, where the exams are held at least once a month. It is also worth checking with your child's school about the possibility of taking the exam. Many schools organize courses at least once a year and allow you to take the exam.
