Service Description

If your driving licence has been legally withdrawn and you want to drive a motor vehicle on public roads again, you must apply for a new driving licence.

Preconditions:
A driving licence may be reissued only on application after withdrawal and after expiry of any blocking period set. Since the relevant investigations take some time, the application for re-issue of the driving licence should be submitted three months before the end of the blocking period.


Who should I contact?

To your district or your independent city (driving licence authority). The responsibility depends on the place of residence (main residence according to the identity card).

In many cases, a medical-psychological report from an officially recognised assessment centre for fitness to drive is also required to assess whether fitness to drive is restored. Please contact the competent driving licence authority in this regard.

What are the fees?

The fees are set by the respective authority in accordance with the scale of fees for road transport measures (GebOSt).

What deadlines do I have to pay attention to?

The application for re-grant should be submitted to the driving licence authority three months before the end of the blocking period (but not earlier).
