  1. Thats exactly my problem! Years ago changed my surname by Deedpoll but kept my birth surname as my middle name . (Both names are on my passport and legal documents except my bloomen UK Driving Licence ( I had forgot about that) At 16:00 today I am due to go to the Landratsamt, I have my UK passport, Meldebescheinigung, photos, and the old paper UK driving licence address on it is still okish cos my family still lives there. I will also take along the Deedpoll paper. I am mega panicking now they wont accept it! Who actually checks it the British Consulate? It has to be changed before Brexit date oct 31 2019  
  2. UK Deed Poll Requirements

    I am in the procedure of changing my UK driving licence (the old paper licence)to a DE one.I am paniking cos I need to get it changed before the Brexit deadline!! Oct 31st Im due to go tomorrow with all the paperwork. Now here is the next panik/problem,I changed my first name by deedpoll years ago, keeping my birth name as middle name,Which shows on my GB passport. But my driving licence only shows middle name (birth name) I didnt realise at the time I should have also imformed the Driving Licence officials about my name  being changed.( stupidity I know:(  The question is will they see my middle name the same as on my driving licence and birth certificate and overlook it? I cant believe I am asking this, thankyou for any helpfull replies!

  4. Brexit / Applying for German citizenship

    Yes thanks Leon I will ask but just read on the facebook site that the Aufenthaltes thing becomes invalid when we leave the EU. They said to apply for a residence permit.  So if I have the interview for duel citizenship before oct 31 and theres a no deal brexit then its too late, but if there is a deal then they will give me time to take and pass the B1 and Einbürgerungstest?
