Christina Mclaughlin Leave a comment Starting last May, Juneau Construction of Miami-Dade County broke ground on a new residential hall to be built for undergraduate students. This new undergraduate residential hall will be housed on top of the former practice soccer field and on the corner of College Drive and Perimeter Rd.
The most important section for foreigners is the right-of-way discussion. When you're done, you can test your knowledge here. Licensing If you are visiting Germany and will not be establishing residency, then your own driver's license from your home country, state, or province is valid in Germany for as long as you're there.
If you will be establishing residency in Germany, your driver's license is valid for six months from the date when permanent residency is established, which in practice is generally assumed to be the date you enter the country.
You will have to obtain a German driver's license in order to continue driving after that six month grace period expires. If your residency will be for longer than six months but less than one year and you can legally prove ityou can obtain a six month extension to use your existing license.
There is a bit of confusion and disagreement on whether foreigners need to also have an International Driving Permit IDP. With recent international agreements on standardizing driver license formats, you generally will no longer need an IDP if your license conforms to the numbered format; that is, each of the bits of information on your license name, date of birth, etc.
If so, then that license is accepted in Germany without the need for an IDP. This is because the police know what the numbered attributes on your license mean, which was the purpose of the IDP.
If your license does not have those attributes numbered, then you're supposed to carry an official translation of your license in addition to the license itself. IIf you're unsure, my recommendation is to get an IDP before you go-- better safe than sorry.
Keep in mind that an IDP does not replace your official driver's license-- it is just a translation of it in an internationally recognized format.
You must carry your official license with your IDP in order for it to be valid. To do this, you must have a valid license in your home country and have not lived in Germany for more than three years. What happens next will depend on where you hail from. Germany has reciprocal agreements with many countries and US states allowing driver's licenses to be converted.
If you're lucky, you may have to do nothing more than fill-out some paperwork although after you finally finish all the required forms, you may wonder just how lucky you really are!
If not, you may still get off only having to take the written test. Otherwise, you'll have to go through the whole testing procedure, just like the Germans do.
Note, though, that when a conversion is possible, only holders of non-commercial vehicle licenses can convert their existing license to a German license.
If your license was issued in one of the following US states, you can convert your license to a German license without any testing: Licenses from these US states require the applicant to take just the written test: For a complete and current list of all US states, Canadian provinces, and other countries with reciprocal license agreements, see the sites listed in the links section at the bottom of this page.
You may also be required to take a first-aid class. If you can convert your license without testing, simply complete the required paperwork and submit it. If you have to take the written tests, it will be given at the traffic office.
The test consists of sections covering laws, signs, vocabulary, theory, and energy conservation. Be wary, though-- you just want the short laws and signs class, not the full driving course. Make sure you ask for the special class for new residents. If a school tells you they don't offer it, find one that does.
If you have to take the practical on-the-road test, it will be conducted by a driving school not the traffic office as is the case in the US and will last about an hour.
It will most likely include a short trip on the Autobahn. If you need practice, most driving schools offer short courses to prepare for the practical test as well.
Once you pass these tests, you will take the paperwork to the traffic office where you will be awarded a German driver's license valid for the rest of your life!Accessibility Statement: Transportation and Parking Management Customer Portal March, Office of Information Technology, Boise State University, acknowledges that the current version of the new parking management customer portal is not fully accessible.
