First aid

I don't have to take any kind of text, but I do need to complete a full-day first aid course. It seems like this applies to all people with foreign licenses.

Six month rule for getting license recognized in Germany

I have a driver's license from Arizona. Have lived in Germany for a while (certainly more than six months ;-)). Have they gotten rid of that silly rule that you had to apply to switch it to a German one within six months of arriving in the country? If that is true the chart says I don't require the theoretical or the practical test to get it done. Grateful for any info. Thx!

rules are made to be broken

I believe it's still a rule, but they ignore the rule in almost every instance.

Driving Test

You can take your test in English and study in it as well. US drivers be aware that the English is a pseudo-british / shitty German Google translate version and for me at least was more difficult than the German version...Also be sure to study its a massive amount of knowledge to upload...900 Questions - multiple choice with multiple correct answers and some annoyingly tricky word plays...
