Transport and Driving Licence
You are allowed to drive with a valid driving licence in Germany for 6 months. After 6 months you will have to apply to have your licence converted into a German licence at the local road traffic licencing office (Straßenverkehrsamt). This is not necessary for valid licences from European Union or European Economic Region countries. To find out whether your driving licence is valid in Germany, check with the Federal Ministry for Transport and Digital Infrastructure.
There are car rental firms and various car sharing and car pool possibilities at all three campus locations.
All three of our university campuses have good bus connections. In Villingen-Schwenningen and Tuttlingen there are also rail connections.
