Welcome to Drivers Testing and Training

To drive in Germany, U.S. personnel must have a valid stateside driver's license and obtain a USAREUR driver's license. The driving age is 18 and above in most European countries. 

USAREUR driver's licenses are valid for five years. If someone's tour extends beyond five years, they must renew the license and pay the fee. Personnel must carry U.S. license with USAREUR license. 

Keep in mind, only USAREUR license holders are authorized to drive a USAREUR registered vehicle. Not all NATO countries recognize USAREUR licenses. Personnel planning to travel should obtain an international driver's license.

How to Get a USAREUR Drivers' License

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. 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.  

Step #2: Go to the Driver's Testing Station to apply in person 

After passing the online test, go to the Driver's Testing Station. It takes a minimum of 48 hours for the scores to be processed to the driver's testing station. Personnel will then fill out an application (190-1T), take an eye test and pay a fee for the USAREUR driver's license. The current fee is $20, and, until further notice, only checks or money orders are accepted for payment. 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.
