Service Description

Under certain conditions, a driver's license can be issued even though the minimum age has not yet been reached.

The minimum age for obtaining a driving license is 18 years for driving license categories A2, B, BE, C1 and C1E. Driving licenses for categories AM, A1, L and T can be obtained at the age of 16.

The driving license law is a "special hazard prevention law". The minimum age limits are also intended to protect the general public and ultimately the persons concerned.

Decisions on exceptions to the minimum age must always be made on a case-by-case basis. The prerequisite for deviating from the legal requirements is that the application of the regulations would mean "undue hardship not intended by the legislator" for the applicant and that waiting until the minimum age would be unreasonable for them due to their personal circumstances, which differ significantly from those of applicants of the same age.
