Driver's license issue new due to name change

It is true that there is no legal regulation that the driving licence must be changed after a new surname has been adopted by marriage or other reasons. However, if it is not apparent in the identity card that the driver's licence holder once kept the name on the driving licence, a change is strongly advised. The same applies to a change of first name, date of birth or place of birth. A change of address is not entered in the driving licence and is therefore not to be reported.
