Driving license exchange: If you miss your deadline, you have to expect problems.

Expert names crucial documents for the exchange.

A lot has changed for drivers at the turn of the year 2022.

As

echo24.de

reported, there are many new regulations to be observed.

All vehicle owners must take a close look at their driver's license.

According to the current EU regulation, driving licenses must be forgery-proof and uniform throughout Europe.

Older driving licenses must be exchanged.

And in July the deadline expires for certain vintages.

In principle, all driving licenses that were issued before January 19, 2013 must be exchanged with the new regulation.

After that there is only the EU driver's license in credit card format.

The gray "rags" and pink driver's licenses have had their day.

Driver's license exchange for certain years: Deadline ends on July 19, 2022

After Corona thwarted the first deadline, the deadline for the exchange of driving licenses for those born between 1953 and 1958 was postponed to January 2022.

Now the last chance to do so is July 19, 2022.

All drivers who belong to these two years should now immediately deal with the exchange of their driving license.

According to the information, the offices need several weeks for the entire process.

This is how the exchange of old driving licenses works

According to the General German Automobile Club (ADAC), the process for exchanging old driving licenses is uncomplicated.

Motorists must go to their driver's license office and apply there for the exchange of the driver's license for the corresponding vehicle class.

A health examination is not necessary for this.

You should have your identity card or passport, biometric passport photo and current driver's license with you.

Validity of the new driver's license

According to the ADAC, the new EU driving license remains valid for an unlimited period, regardless of when you took the driving test.

Only the

"validity of the driver's license document is limited to 15 years"

.

Anyone who refuses or misses the deadline must expect fines.

The warning money is 10 euros.

However, that does not mean that you are committing a crime.

According to ADAC, however, things are different for truck and bus driving licenses.

In addition, drivers with expired driving licenses abroad have to reckon with difficulties.

The end of the whole campaign with the exchange of old driver's licenses is given on the website of the federal government on January 19, 2033.

But which deadline is decisive for whom?

As the experts at ADAC explain, the issue date of the driver's license document is decisive - not the issue date.

In the case of driver's licenses issued before January 1, 1999, you have to follow the deadlines, which are broken down by year of birth.
