How to renew a driving license in Germany
From the date of issue (section 14(10) in a driving license) a German driving license is valid for 15 years.
If it's time to renew yours, simply make an appointment at your local driving license office before your existing driving license expires. It's better to start the processes 3 - 4 weeks earlier as it might be difficult to get an appointment at some offices.
