When driving for an extended period in Germany it is necessary to convert a foreign driver’s license to a local German version, Führerschein, within the first six months following. Following that time, the original license is no longer valid and driving not permitted. It is possible but not recommended to convert a license for up to three years following commencement of residency.

During that time, however, the process can become more involved even leading to the need to sit a new driving test. This system operates for licenses issued in most countries, though exemptions do exist.

Neuss belongs to a larger administrative region hence some official business needs to be instigated in the offices of the Rhine County Neuss, Rhein-Kreis Neuss. This is the case concerning driver licenses.

Anyone who has experienced the hospitality offered by this society knows this country and its folk have changed very much over recent years. Neuss is as a whole peaceful and its citizens are mostly generous and laid back.


Trams run through the centre of Neuss, connecting to the overground and underground system. Modern and clean local buses run across a widespread network.
