Fact sheet for holders of foreign driving licences from states outside the European Union and

the European Economic Area on driving licence provisions in the Federal Republic of Germany

 

This fact sheet provides you with information on the most important German provisions for holdersof foreign driving licences from states that are not members of the European Union or parties to the

Agreement on the European Economic Area (EEA). (Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway are EEA states). If you have any further questions, please contact your local driver licensing authority at your

city or district council.

 

1.

Using your foreign driving licence when staying in Germany temporarily

1.1 If you hold a valid

- domestic driving licence or

-

an International Driving Permit in accordance with the International Convention rela tive to Motor Traffic of 24 April 1926, the Convention on Road Traffic of 8 November 1968 orthe Convention on Road Traffic of 1949, you may drive or ride motor vehicles of the category that is indicated on your licence in the Federal Republic of Germany. Please note that an International Driving Permit in accordance with the Convention on Road

Traffic of 8 November 1968 is only valid in conjunction with the domestic driving licence it is

based on. An International Driving Permit by itself is not sufficient.

If you have not been issued an International Driving Permit, a

translation

of your driving

licence is required in the following cases:

- domestic driving licences that are not in the German language;

- domestic driving licences that do not conform to the provisions of Annex 6 of the

Convention on Road Traffic of 8 November 1968.

German translations may be prepared by:

- German motoring organizations;

- court-appointed and certified interpreters and translators;

- 2 -

- masters of German sea-going ships;

- internationally recognized motoring organizations of the state that issued t

he driving

licence;

- official agencies of the state that issued the driving licence.

The Federal Republic of Germany does not require a translation of licences issued by the

following states: Andorra, Hong Kong, Monaco, New Zealand, San Marino, Senegal and

Switzerland.

As long as you have not taken up normal residence in the Federal Republic of Germany, you

may drive or ride motor vehicles with your valid foreign driving licence for an unlimited

period. If there are any conditions and restrictions on your driving licence, you must also

comply with them when driving in the Federal Republic of Germany. Please note that your

passenger car licence is not automatically valid here. This is the case, in part

icular, if you have

not yet reached the minimum age required in the Federal Republic of Germany for the

category in question.

After taking up normal residence in the Federal Republic of Germany, you are entitle

d to drive

or ride motor vehicles for another six months. After this period, your driving licence wil

l no

longer be recognized. If you wish to continue driving or riding a motor vehicle on German

roads, you will then require a driving licence issued in the Federal Republic of Germany

.

In exceptional cases, the driver licensing authority may, upon request, extend the deadli

ne by

up to six months if you can prove to their satisfaction that you will not have your normal

residence in the Federal Republic of Germany for longer than twelve months.

Put simply, your

normal residence

is where you live for at least 185 days each year.

Commuters

do not take up normal residence in the Federal Republic of Germany. Their

foreign driving licence will be recognized in the Federal Republic of Germany for an

unlimited period, as long as the licence itself is valid. “Commuters” are defined as the holders

of a domestic driving licence issued by another country or an International Driving Perm

it

who have their residence abroad but drive or ride motor vehicles in the Federal Republic of

Germany because they are employed here and who regularly return to their residence

abroad.

Students or schoolchildren can also be “commuters”.

- 3 -

Holders of foreign driving licences who have taken up employment in the Federal Republic of

Germany but only return to the family residence they maintain abroad occasionally a

re not

classified as commuters.

1.2

Cases in which your foreign driving licence does not entitle you to drive

Your driving licence does not entitle you to drive or ride a motor vehicle in the Federal

Republic of Germany:

-

if the licence you hold is a learner licence or any other provisional licence;

-

if you have not yet reached the minimum age required in the Federal Republic of Germany

for the category in question;

-

if you had your normal residence in the Federal Republic of Germany at the time you

obtained the foreign licence;

- if your driving licence has been withdrawn in the Federal Republic of Germany by a court

of law with the withdrawal being provisional or non-appealable or by an administrative

authority with the withdrawal being immediately enforceable or non-appealable, or if you

have been refused a driving licence with the refusal being non-appealable or if the only

reason your driving licence has not been withdrawn is that you have relinquished it in the

meantime;

- if you are banned from being issued a driving licence due to a non-appealable court

decision; or

- if you have been disqualified or your driving licence has been confiscated, seized or

impounded in the Federal Republic of Germany, in the state that issued your driving

licence or in the state in which you have your normal residence.

Please note that you are not permitted to drive or ride a motor vehicle if you do not

have, or no longer have, an entitlement to drive, and that doing so will be treated as

driving without a driving licence and penalized accordingly.

2.

Issuing of a German driving licence on the basis of a foreign driving licence

If you take up normal residence in the Federal Republic of Germany, you will need a German

- 4 -

driving licence no later than after six months, unless the driver licensing authority

has made

an exception and extended this deadline (see 1.1).

The German driving licence is valid for 15 years. After the expiry of this period of val

idity,

the issue of a new driving licence is required. Upon expiry, the driving licence document is

simply exchanged by the administration. The exchange neither requires additional re

gular

medical examinations nor any other kinds of examinations. Such examinations are only

required for certain professions that have a special responsibility (among others, pr

ofessional

drivers, bus/coach drivers).

The conditions governing the issuing of a German driving licence vary depending on which

country you obtained your licence in:

- in a country that is listed in Annex 11 of the Regulations for the Licensing of Drivers (2.1)

or

- in a country that is not listed in Annex 11 of the Regulations for the Licensing of Drivers

(2.2).

2.1

Issuing of a German driving licence to holders of driving licences from a coun

try listed

test, or are only required to take part of the test, in order to be issued a German driving

licence. (Information correct as at 30 June 2012)

- a statement declaring that your foreign driving licence is still valid.

In individual cases, the driver licensing authority may also demand the submission of a

ntries that
