Pick up your driver's license


Use Online-Service

Detailed description

The new driver's license will generally be sent by registered mail by Bundesdruckerei. In exceptional cases, no delivery can be made and the new driver's license must be collected from the Landesbetrieb Verkehr (LBV) in exchange for the old driver's license.
A general pick-up takes place in the case of foreign driving licenses.



Documents required

  • a valid identity card or passport with current registration confirmation
  • existing driver's license
  • if available: a test certificate issued by the TÜV for the passed driving test

You can have your driver's license collected by an authorized person. In this case you will need a copy of the identity card, the power of attorney from the applicant and, if necessary, the old driving license.

Please note

If you have applied for a driver's license from the LBV, you do not have to collect it from the LBV; it is usually sent to you directly by the Bundesdruckerei by registered mail or given by the TÜV inspector after you have passed a practical driving test.
You will be informed as part of the application whether the driver's license you have applied for will be sent directly to your home. The driver's license is usually sent approx. 3-4 weeks after the application has been submitted to the LBV.
If it is not sent by registered mail, you can pick up the driver's license during opening hours at the location where you applied for it (LBV location Hamburg-Mitte or Hamburg-Nord).

Processing time

Sending by registered mail or collection in individual cases usually takes place after 3 - 4 weeks.


The fees were paid when the application was made.
