Apply for a driver's license for the first time for class L

Service Description

Anyone who wants to drive a motor vehicle in Germany needs a driver's license.

The driving license serves as proof of possession of the corresponding driving permit.

Driving licenses are divided into certain classes:

Driving licenses for classes AM, A, A1, A2, B, BE, L and T are issued for an unlimited period.

For the classes C1, C1E, C, CE, D1, D1E, D and DE, the driving license is issued for a maximum of five years.

In order to obtain your driving license for the first time, you must complete training at a driving school and pass a driving test.

Note: You should apply for your driving license as soon as you start training at the driving school. You can submit the required application to the driving license authority responsible for your place of residence at the earliest six months before reaching the minimum age applicable to the desired driving license class.

The theoretical test may be taken no earlier than three months before you reach the minimum age.

If you do not pass the test, you can retake it. The number of repetitions is not limited.

Class L covers tractors with a maximum speed of up to 40 km/h (with trailers up to 25 km/h), which are intended for use for agricultural and forestry purposes and are used for such purposes.

The driving license class L is included in the normal passenger car driving license (class B), but can also be purchased separately.

In contrast, the driving license class T must be acquired in addition to the (existing) class B.
