Studded tyres are allowed to be used from 15 October

10. October 2018 - 10:30

Although there is still time until it is mandatory to use winter tyres, drivers are allowed to use studded tyres from 15 October. The use of studless winter tyres is allowed all year round.

In the current weather conditions, it should be kept in mind that staying on the road, including on a slippery road, does not depend solely on whether the car has studded or studless tyres. The driver should always consider the road conditions and adapt the driving style or the techniques accordingly. For example, reduce speed and drive cautiously on a slippery road.

The use of winter tyres is mandatory in Estonia from 1 December.
