Driving license exchange: First deadline in the step-by-step plan

But how does the driver's license exchange work?

On

ADAC.de

it said: “You go to your  driver's

license

office  and apply for an exchange of your driving license for motorcycle and car classes. 

Without an exam

or health examination.

"

The exchange is mandatory, emphasize the experts: If you instead continue to drive with your old

car or motorcycle license

and allow the deadline to pass, you risk a 

fine

 of ten euros.

Important, so it was said on

ADAC.de

: "However, you do not commit a crime - it is different with truck and bus driving licenses!"

You can also read

: These rules must be observed by drivers in 2022 - driver's licenses, assistance systems, etc.

Deadlines for the mandatory exchange of old driving licenses

The first important date is approaching: Anyone  born

between 1953 and 1958

 must exchange their driving license 

by January 19, 2022

This exchange should take place according to the respective

age of the documents

, the date of

  • Driving licenses issued between 1999 and 2001 should be exchanged by January 19, 2026.

  • For the exhibition years 2002 to 2004, the plan provides for a deadline of January 19, 2027

Driver's license: what do you need for an exchange?

According to ADAC.de ,

car drivers and motorcyclists

need

an identity card or passport, a biometric passport photo and the

current driver's license

for the exchange .

"If the old (pink or gray) paper driver's license was not issued by the authority of your current place of residence, you also need a copy of the so-called 

index card

 from the authority that originally issued the driver's license," it said

on

ADAC.de.

It can be applied for by post, by phone or often online and sent directly to the new driver's license office.

costs

for the exchange at the

local driver's license

office cost around 25 euros, on top of which there are the costs for the biometric passport photo.
