I am an Indian National who has moved to Germany recently. I was entitled to drive a vehicle for the first 6 months of my stay with my Indian drivers license. But the same license with which I drove on the German roads gets void in Germany immediately after the 6th month.
And most trouble some part is a mere translation of my license or exchange of my license is not possible. I need to pass the theory exam and also get Practical driving classes and then pass the exam to get a German license.
I feel this is utterlly illogical as I was legally allowed to drive for 6months and immediately with no mistake of mine I am not allowed to drive and need to go through the expensive and tiresome German driving classes and exams to get one.
