I'm planning to take a road trip to Croatia, and I'm wondering if I can enter the country with a European driver license that is less than one year old?

AFAIK there are no restrictions, so you're allowed to drive a car in Croatia if you have a valid EU driver licence – Dirty-flow Jul 4 '13 at 12:02
European license or EU license? – Vince Jul 4 '13 at 12:05
I have a driving license issued in Romania, that I was told is good as any other driving license issued in any of the European Union's countries. – fogpaszta Jul 4 '13 at 12:12
And this is your own car or a loaned one, i.e. you're not planning to rent one? Rental companies often have restrictions on the age of the driver (not the license). – Michael Borgwardt Jul 4 '13 at 12:44
It will be my own car, not a rental. – fogpaszta Jul 4 '13 at 16:13

Since at least 2009, Romania issues fully compatible EU driving licenses, credit card style and with the EU logo. With those, there should be no problem at all.
