THE PARTICIPATION IN TRAFFIC OF UNSUITABLE DRIVERS IN POSSESSION OF FOREIGN DRIVING LICENCES

TEILNAHME UNGEEIGNETER KRAFTFAHRER AM STRASSENVERKEHR MIT AUSLAENDISCHEN FUEHRERSCHEINEN

ACCORDING TO VALID LAW, ANY TEMPORARY WITHDRAWAL OF A DRIVING LICENCE MUST BE ENTERED ON ALL FOREIGN DRIVING LICENCES. CONFISCATION OF A DRIVING LICENCE MAY TAKE PLACE UP TO THE REGISTRATION OF THIS ENTRY. FOREIGN DRIVING LICENCES ARE SUBJECT TO EXACTLY THE SAME REGULATIONS IN THIS RESPECT AS GERMAN DRIVING LICENCES. DESPITE THIS, THERE ARE CERTAIN LOOPHOLES IN EXISTING REGULATIONS. A FOREIGN DRIVING LICENCE MAY ONLY BE WITHDRAWN IN THE CASE OF CONTRAVENTION OF TRAFFIC REGULATIONS AND NOT IN THE CASE OF OTHER OFFENCES. THIS DOES NOT EXCLUDE THE POSSIBILITY OF EVADING CONFISCATION OF A GERMAN DRIVING LICENCE. THE GERMAN NATIONAL IN QUESTION CAN OBTAIN EITHER AN INTERNATIONAL OR A FOREIGN DRIVING LICENCE. FROM THE LEGAL POINT OF VIEW NOT ONLY FOREIGNERS ARE CLASSIFIED AS NON GERMAN DRIVERS. THE TERM ALSO APPLIES TO GERMANS PERMANENTLY DOMICILED ABROAD. LEGAL ADJUSTMENTS WILL HAVE TO BE IMPLEMENTED IF ABUSES ARE TO BE PREVENTED.
