Every German Driver Must Be Trained In First Aid Upon Taking Drivers Test. No Aid Kit, No Driving!
If you thought parallel parking was the hardest part of your driving test, think again!
German drivers and future drivers must take a first-aid training course in order to receive their license. But that's not all!
One must also carry a first-aid kit in their car 24/7. This is usually done through the German Red Cross or a partner through the Red Cross.
The basic first aid course is 4 double hours long and it is necessary for all car and motorcycle licenses. Four double hours is equal to 6.5 normal hours. If you are driving something larger such as a bus, truck or even a commercial vehicle like a taxi, then you must receive an extended first aid course.
In the course, you will learn CPR, accident site tips, recovery, shock and more. However, you must register in advance before doing so. If you are from another country, you will need to pass a first aid test administered in Germany in order to receive a driver's license there.
