CONVERSION

We advise you all around the conversion of a foreign driving license:

  • manual / automatic transmission
  • translation of the national driving license
  • vision test
  • First Aid / Immediate Life Saving Measures
  • application at the driving license office
  • dead lines

As a non-EU citizen you are only allowed to use your national driving license for six month after registering in Germany.

Then you need an EU driving license. The process to get the German license takes about three months.

There are different regulations for the various countries. Link: KVR München
When you have to pass any tests, your first step should be the registration in a driving school.

Theory Test:

You do not have to attend any theory lessons! The online study material, which you can purchase at our office, is available in 11 languages (English, French, Greek, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Spanish, Serbo-Croatian, and Turkish). You can prepare for the test on your own and give the test in one of those languages. There is an accompanying study book available in English, Russian and Turkish. Link: Contact 

Practical Test:

You can only give this test, when you have passed the theory test. There is no binding number of driving lessons you have to do, so called “Sonderfahrten” (country roads, autobahn, night lessons) can be taken, but are not mandatory.

Holders of a foreign license are thoroughly informed about specific German traffic rules. Previous driving experience, right-hand / left-hand driving, the individual ability to adjust to new rules and change old habits are relevant factors to pass the practical test successfully. 

Please book driving lessons either in the office or directly with the driving instructor. It is advisable to plan and book well in advance!

Driving lessons begin at our Fahrschule in Heßstraße. Thus you are going to drive in the test area and get to know it well.
