Driving licence: Exhibition - from 17 years

Young people in Germany are already allowed to drive cars and trucks up to 3.5 t at the age of 17, as well as cars with trailers, if they have successfully passed the driving licence test. However, driving is only permitted until the 18th birthday if accompanied by an adult – otherwise the driving licence, fine and an extension of the probationary period are threatened.
