"Finally mobile again"

Emigrating to Brittany. A dream came true. But if you live in a small village without public transport, you won't get very far without a car. I was therefore so happy that I was also able to have my old driving license translated quickly and easily with lingoking. Thank you!

Do you have questions about paper driving license translation for Germany?

  • + Is the driving licence translation obligatory?

    If you come from an EU country or a country from the European Economic Area (EEA), which includes Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein, you do not need to have your driving licence translated in order to be allowed to drive in Germany. However, different rules apply to drivers from other countries outside the EU. If persons are only staying temporarily in Germany, they may drive motor vehicles of the class for which the driving licence is issued if one of the following two requirements is met:

    ➤ The person holds a valid national driving licence. ➤ It possesses an international driving licence in accordance with the International Convention on Motor Traffic of 24 April 1926, the Convention on Road Traffic of 8 November 1968 or the 1949 Convention on Road Traffic.

    If the national driving licence is not in German or does not comply with Annex 6 of the Convention on Road Traffic of 8 November 1968, the person concerned must have the licence translated. [Source: www.bussgeldkatalog.org]

    Other regulations come into force if you establish a normal place of residence in Germany — i.e. you live there for at least 185 days a year. In this case, it is necessary for you to have your foreign driving licence converted.

Do you have questions about paper driving license translation for abroad?

  • + In which countries is my driving licence valid?

    The driving licence is now valid almost everywhere within Europe. This is not limited to the EU states, but also includes Norway and Switzerland, for example. In some European countries, an international driving licence is nevertheless recommended. Outside Europe, you must always have an international driving licence or a certified English translation.

  • + What is a certified English translation?

    A practical alternative to the officially issued international driving licence is a certified English translation of your European driving licence. A certified driving licence translation is accepted outside the European Union in almost all countries where English is the official language. These include the USA, Canada, South Africa, Namibia, and Australia. The driving licence translated into English and certified is valid for just as long as your driving licence!

    A valid driving licence must be available for the certified translation — either the card driving licence, the grey or pink driving licence or also a GDR driving licence. However, a scan or photo is sufficient to have the driving licence translated.

Do you have questions about the ordering/translation process of paper driving licenses?

  • + What do you have to pay attention to in a driving licence translation?

    Driving licence translations required for a German authority are always offered at lingoking including certification and classification. Translations for foreign countries, on the other hand, only with certification. In both cases, the translation is done by a sworn translator in Germany.

    By the way: A scan or photo of your driving licence is sufficient for the translation, we do not need the original. Please note, however, that the Führerscheinstelle (driving licence office) in Düsseldorf only accepts translations of originals. In this case, contact a local service provider or contact us, we will be happy to help you with your search.

  • + What does the translation of a driving licence cost?

    The price for the translation depends on the language combination. More exotic languages are slightly more expensive than widely spoken ones. Also, the price depends on whether a classification is necessary.

    Depending on the source language, you can get a translation of a driving licence into German for as little as 50 euros (incl. certification, classification & shipping). Certified driving licence translations without classification from German into a foreign language are available for as little as 45 euros.

    For a small surcharge, you can also order additional certified copies and an additional digital version. You will receive your certified translation not only by post, but also digitally as a scan. In addition, if you need the translation quickly, our express service with express shipping is also available. Brilliant!
