Applying for a driving license for mopeds and motorcycles for the first time

Service Description

As a result of several years of successful piloting, initiated by Thuringia, Saxony and Saxony-Anhalt, a minimum age of 15 years has applied nationwide since July 28, 2021 for the issue of the AM driving license category. Until you reach the age of 16, your driving license is subject to the condition that you may only use it when driving within Germany. This condition no longer applies when you reach the age of 16, so that you can then also drive abroad.

For motorcycle categories (A1, A2 and A), there is the option of a so-called graduated driving license. This means that for the first A1 (or A2) driving license, you have to take a theoretical and a practical driving school course followed by a test. To upgrade to the next higher category, only a shortened practical test is then required. This is intended to promote a gradual introduction to higher driving license categories.
