Step #1: Complete USAREUR Driver's License training on Joint Knowledge Online (JKO)
People age 18 and over must first complete the training and pass the USAREUR driver's test on JOINT KNOWLEDGE ONLINE (Course IDs: USA-007 and USA-007B). Common Access Card (CAC) users can log into JKO. CAC users can sponsor dependents without CACs on the website. For applicants under age 18 who already possess a valid U.S. driver's license, their sponsor must request an exception to policy from USAREUR headquarters in Sembach. The request should include the sponsor's name, rank, organization, APO mailing address and a copy of the front and back of the applicant's U.S. driver's license.
Note: All incoming and new personnel to the Wiesbaden local area who have not obtained a USAREUR POV license in Germany before will attend the 2.5-hour “POV Drivers Orientation” class and pass the 100-question written test in order to obtain a USAREUR POV Certificate of License.

Step #2: Go to the Driver's Testing Station to apply in person
After passing the online test, go to the Driver's Testing and Training Station. It takes a minimum of 48 hours for the scores to be processed to the driver's testing and training station. Personnel will then fill out an application (190-1T), take an eye test (applicants over 65 years must bring an eye examination from an optometrist) and pay a fee for the USAREUR driver's license. The current fee is $30 with debit/credit card, check or money order. Personnel will receive a temporary driver's license on-site. The hard-copy license will be sent to their APO mailing address within three to four weeks.
