German driver’s license in Singapore

The German driver's license is not fully recognized in Singapore and can only be used for a limited time. Holders of a German driver's license who intend to stay in Singapore for longer must obtain a Singaporean driver's license.

A German license can be transcribed and exchanged for a Singaporean license. The German Embassy in Singapore can issue a driver's license certificate in English language, which is recognized by the driver's license offices. Read more on our German website: Führerscheinangelegenheiten
