Hebrew Date On Drivers’ Licenses

In accordance with a 2015 law, Israeli drivers’ licenses will now include Hebrew dates of birth.

Implementation of the law was delayed to verify that addition of a Hebrew date would not negatively impact international acceptance of Israeli licenses.

A court ruled in 2015 that the two-year restrictive period for new drivers may be determined according to Hebrew years, which are often shorter.

In general, Israeli law mandates use of the Hebrew calendar in all state documents, correspondence and publications.
