Driver's license translation
lingoking provides you with a certified translation of your driver's license including classification, postal delivery and a personal all-round service at an affordable price.
Certified translations from lingoking are recognised by all authorities in Germany – the translations are carried out by court-sworn translators.
Non-EU driver's licenses are only valid in Germany for up to 6 months. For the transcription of your driver's license, you will need a certified translation. If you want to travel abroad with your German driver's license, you also often need a certified translation.
The price for your translation will be displayed without you having to upload your document first. You can review your translation before it is sent and make any desired changes.
Please note: In case you have an old folding driver's license please choose the translation product Other translation.
Optionally, you can additionally book a classification of your driving licence. Depending on the issuing country, German authorities may in some cases require an additional determination of the vehicle class(es.
Simply select the "With classification" option in the second booking step. Further information on driving licence classifications can be found here. Please note that we only offer classifications into German.
We only offer certified translations from German or into German. Unfortunately, translations without German in the chosen language combination are not always possible. Our translators are not authorised to translate driver's licenses into Japanese. For this, please contact the Japan Automobile Federation (JAF).
The driver's licence office in Düsseldorf only accepts translations of the original document. If you plan to get your driver's licence converted in Düsseldorf, please choose a local service. This information is only valid for Düsseldorf!

Super fast and super easy. All I had to do was take a photo of the document – a Greek birth certificate – and then upload it using just my mobile. I didn’t even have to wait a week until I had the certified document in my post box. I am very satisfied and would definitely use this service again. (5/5 stars)
lingoking was quick and easy to use, sent them a scanned copy of my license and they posted me back a stamped translation within days. Would definitely recommend. (5/5 Sterne)
Highly appreciate the simplistic and professional approach of lingoking service. My overall experience with the service was completely brilliant with no hassles of running around. Thanks!. (5/5 stars)
