Millions of driver’s licenses invalid in a few weeks: Anyone who does not exchange pays a fine

The driving license should have a uniform format in the EU by 2033. According to the Auto Club Europa (ACE), around 43 million bills have to be exchanged in Germany in order to convert all bills to the only valid check card format. This affects all driver’s licenses for cars and motorcycles that were issued before January 19, 2013.

So that this does not end in chaos, the exchange takes place in stages over the years at specific deadlines. For the first group, however, it is now high time to take care of it.

If you were born between 1953 and 1958 and still have a driving license that was issued before January 1, 1999, you have until July 19, 2022 Time. And that’s only because the original deadline (January 19) was extended due to the corona, according to ACE. After that, the document becomes invalid.
