In principle, German driver's license law applies to every holder of a foreign driver's license who moves his or her normal place of residence to Germany. This is the case if you live in Germany for at least 185 days (6 months) a year. It does not matter what nationality you have as the holder of the foreign driving license, only the normal residence is decisive. Existing foreign driving licenses are recognized differently for transcription. Germany distinguishes between three groups of countries of origin of the driving licenses: • Possession of a driving license from an EU/EEA member state Here, a transcription is only required when the validity of the foreign driving license expires. • Possession of a driving license from states according to Appendix 11 FeV (“list states”) Here, a transcription is required in any case. The exact scope of the recognition of the driving licenses of the listed states is regulated in the Appendix 11 of the Driving License Ordinance (FeV). Driving licenses (of certain classes) from these countries can be transferred in Germany in some cases without examination. • Possession of a driving license from other countries ("third countries") A transcription is required in any case. In contrast to the countries listed in Appendix 11 FeV, a theoretical and practical exam is always required here. In contrast to the first acquisition of a driving license, as the holder of a foreign driving license you are exempt from the obligation to undergo training ("compulsory hours").
USE OF FOREIGN DRIVING LICENSES
In addition to the initial acquisition of a driver's license, we also offer you the transfer of your existing and valid foreign driver's license. You can take the theory exam in 13 official languages. Below you will find more information about the use of existing driving licenses in Germany.
