Driving license exchange: First deadline in the phased plan

But how does the driver's license exchange work?

ADAC.de

it said: "You go to your  driver's

license

office  and apply for an exchange of your driver's license for motorcycle and car classes. 

Without exam

car or motorcycle license

and let the deadline pass, you risk a 

fine

 of ten euros.

Driving license: what do you need for the exchange?

car 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 so-called 

index card copy

 of the authority that originally issued the driver's license,"

says

ADAC.de.

You can apply for it by post, by telephone or often online and it will be sent directly to the new driving license office.
