Driving licence on probation

Source: Zuständigkeitsfinder Schleswig-Holstein (Linie6PLus)

Service Description

When a driving licence is acquired for the first time, it is issued on a trial basis; the probationary period shall last two years from the date of issue. If a driving licence is issued to the holder of a driving licence issued abroad, the time since its acquisition is credited to the probationary period.

The instrument of the test driving licence was introduced in order to counteract the risk of danger to novice drivers. Safer and more considerate driving behaviour is to be achieved; in particular, risk awareness is to be promoted and hazard detection improved.
