And when? What else can expect driving license owners? There will also be aptitude tests with the exchange? Site brings you up to date.

1. Why do driving licenses have to be exchanged at all?

Germany must implement an EU directive that provides for the exchange. The reasons for this guideline: traffic law and driving license law should be harmonized and centralized. There should also be counterfeiting documents. All driver’s licenses are recorded in an EU database. What else is planned with the data remains unclear.The 3. EU driver’s license guideline dates from 2006. As Michael Winter, right -wing expert at Site, reports, this is not immediately effective and binding as an EU directive.

The issue of a new driver’s license is also not made dependent on a new aptitude test. Rather, it is a formal process. Germany also has the option of extending the driver’s license from conditions such as Z.B. to make a check of health dependent, no use made.Also interesting: BMW has to pay millions of millions due to errors in shutdown devicesFor the renewal of a driver’s license after the end of the truck and bus classes C, C1, CE, C1E, D, D1, DE and D1E (and only for these classes), the continuing fulfillment of the To demonstrate minimum requirements for physical and mental suitability.

The plastic thing costs 5 cents, i.e. a nice extra bread for the government. If they want that we should get a new driver’s license/driving license, then send me the thing by post. Why should I pay for something that I have had in a different form for 35 years? The only thing the EU positive for the "normal" has created the elimination of the border controls and that you don’t have any other money in every country. We pay politicians and civil servants for inconsistencies. When did they do something positive for the population?

  2. My driver’s license class 3 and 1
    I did in 1981. This driver’s license is acquired for life. I will no longer exchange this gray document. Even if we do not cover yellow vests, we don’t have to bend everything. And if we vote, we should also use common sense and do not follow the mainstream with rash.

  5. "Exchange moves closer "
    What has been holding forever and is also sure ??? Except for the euro and the German pension, of course. At least it has been told us about Theo Waigel and Norbert Blum for years and day. But Theo Waigel actually only spoke of "at least 4oo years", Which of the euro held. But we want to stay with the truth here and don’t go to the ridiculous. Because others do that. And they also get fat diets for it.

  6. No one wants and needs this EU!
    Merkel, Schulz and others dream of this… I will vote for a party against this dictatorship called EU! I don’t want such an EU… The German is a number man and the like. The impoverishment is already noticeable! I am for a dismantling of these institutions called the EU that serves the only industrial and not the citizen! If not the European elections then it will fix the disaster currency euro!… And yes I mourn the Germany of the 80s… Unfortunately we do not live in Germany in any real democracy!… All decisions are made about the heads of the population!

  8. Loss of trust
    It does not create trust if there are previously unlimited documents on the instructions of a central organ as an expiry date. Next, diploma certificates and land register entries will probably have to be renewed regularly. EU – no thanks, because no citizen wanted it like that.

    It is exactly like that. More and more regulations, more and more bureaucracy from supply post politicians deported to Brussels. I don’t want a central government in Brussels, prefer an EEC with customs union and open borders, but national governments and freedom. This EU is ready

  10. Implement EU requirements
    If I hear again that Germany has to implement the EU’s legal requirements, I get the big K…..! How should this be constitutional if the legislation is submitted to a democratically not elected institution? We are only kidnapped – there is a European coup.
