From Monday, December 28, the Estonian Transport Administration (as of January 1, 2021 the Estonian Maritime Administration, the Estonian Civil Aviation Authority, and the Road Administration merged as the Estonian Transport Administration) will temporarily close Jõhvi Service Office to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, other offices can be visited only by pre-arrangement in advance.

If you need to receive documents which will be issued by the Jõhvi office, you must call the phone number provided at the office door. The driving exams continue on the basis of the agreed schedule.

If possible, the e-service of the Transport Administration should be used, where most of the services can be provided, such as changing the driver's license, buying and selling vehicles, requesting documents to be sent at home by post, and requesting car registration plates to be forwarded to parcel terminals.

If, however, it is not possible to provide the service you need over the internet, book an appointment with the Transport Administration.

It is allowed for students to take driving lessons, and take national driving tests on theory and practice. Preventive measures (mask, disinfectants) must be used and the instructor must ensure compliance with the 2+2 rule where possible. The car is not an indoor space.

The measures introduced are constantly reviewed by the Transport Administration and we will provide information about further activities. We recommend that you follow the updated information on the Transport Administration website.

A Transport Administration inspector (January 1, 2021 the Estonian Maritime Administration, the Estonian Civil Aviation Authority, and the Road Administration merged as the Estonian Transport Administration) can be requested to inspect tractors, driveable machines, and their trailers. The request for an inspection should be sent by email to info@mnt.ee, with the nearest office (e.g. Tartu) and "Application for an inspection" as the subject line. The service centre will inform you when the service will be provided.

When the inspector arrives, please remember:

  • the machine must be in the open and accessible
  • the manufacturers identification mark of the machine on the body or chassis must be cleaned in advance and must be legible
  • original documents must be inside the machine where the inspector can reach them
  • you do not need to be present by the machine during the inspection. If you want to observe the inspection, you must maintain your distance
