New EU driving license

2 Replies

I read online http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europe/eu-driving-licence-comes-into-force-8458029.html that new EU driving licenses are to be introduced. Anyone know when they come into effect in Germany?

Don't panic it's not an imminent thing - basically the new licenses came into effect on the 19th January this year but anyone with a license issued prior to this date has the next 20 years to change it! All licenses must be the format of the new license by 2033. You can find plenty of useful information about it here (in German) on the ADAC site, ! http://www.adac.de/_mmm/pdf/EU-F├╝hrerschein 2013_159991.pdf

This is not a bad site for general info on driving license validity in Germany
