FOREIGN DRIVERS LICENSE


Validity of foreign driving licences in the Federal Republic of Germany:

Drivers license from outside EU or EEA
If you hold a driving licence from a state that is not a member of the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA),  this licence will be valid for six months after you have established your normal residence in the Federal Republic of Germany. After this period, your driving licence will no longer be recognized.

EU or EEA drivers license
If you hold a driving licence issued by a Member State of the European Union (EU) or a state party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area (EEA), it will normally remain valid after you have taken up residence in the Federal Republic of Germany until the end of its period of validity. You must have a domestic driving licence – an International Driving Permit is not sufficient.
