German driver’s license in the Philippines

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

A German license can be transcribed and exchanged for a Philippine license. The German Embassy in Manila 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
