Driving licence: Minimum age - exceptions

Source: Zuständigkeitsfinder Schleswig-Holstein (Linie6PLus)

Service Description

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

Driving licence law is a "special right to avert danger". The minimum age limits are also intended to protect the general public and, ultimately, the persons concerned themselves.

Decisions on exceptions to the minimum age must always be taken on a case-by-case basis. For the deviation from the legal requirements, the prerequisite is that the application of the regulations would mean an "undue hardship not intended by the legislator" for the applicant and that it would not be reasonable for him to wait until the minimum age due to his personal circumstances, which differ significantly from those of applicants of the same age.
