Driver's license (Credit card sized)
Non-EU driving licences are only valid in Germany for up to 6 months. For the transcription of your driving licence, you will need a certified translation. Certified translations from lingoking are recognised by all authorities in Germany – the translations are carried out by court-sworn translators.
The price for your translation will be displayed without you having to upload your document first.
Please note: In case you have an old folding driving licence please choose the translation product Other translation.
You can order the translation of your driving licence online, in any language. We will guide you step by step.
Please note that we only offer certified translations from German or into German. Unfortunately, we are not always able to offer translations with language combinations not including German.
Our translators are not authorised to translate driving licences into Japanese. For this, please contact the Japan Automobile Federation (JAF).

I was more than satisfied with the service. The translation was carried out very quickly and to a high standard. The coordination of the project and the agreements made with the translator were very friendly, comfortable and posed no problems. The contact with the customer service team was also very good, ran smoothly and the colleagues were very friendly and always ready to help immediately. All in all, I am completely satisfied! (5/5 stars)
Fast translation and delivery. Thank you. (5/5 stars)
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)
