Drivers' License Information

As a U.S. citizen, there are a few things that must be taken into consideration if you want to drive in Germany. In our service information brochure Drivers' License Information, you will find answers to the most commonly asked questions from U.S. citizens wanting to drive in Germany. Helpful contacts and the latest developments are also outlined.

This service is offered to non-members of AmCham Germany without guarantee. Please note that AmCham Germany cannot provide any legally binding advice on driver's license transfers as applications are reviewed case by case by the responsible authority.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the large number of incoming inquiries, we can only respond to questions from AmCham Germany members. If you have further questions, please get in touch with your local driver’s registration office.
