  1. Hi everyone, I've been in Germany for a handful years as a non-EU national, and as I've been stuck in an English speaking bubble, my German is still not good enough to deal with authorities.   My problem is that I feel more and more the need for a car, now that we've moved a bit more into suburbia. I have a valid foreign license, and from what I understand I'm already past the first 6 months in Germany timeframe where I could have exchanged my old one for a German one.   What to do here in Baden-Wurttemberg? I really don't want to do the who spiel of getting a brand new one, and I'm wondering what I can do to expedite the process. The local authority is no help in person, and what I've been reading online does not cover my specific case - or I couldn't find a good reference for it. Halp
  2. Good Morning everyone! I hope you all had a nice May 1 (although the holiday fell on a weekend ) and are having a good start to the week.   I need to renew my Ohio drivers license and need to get a vision exam.  I am under the impression that the German ophthalalmologists do not test reguarly the 20/20 scale.  Does any have any experience with getting the vision tests done here? What should I request when I make an appointment?  If I take the form with these requirements, will the eye doctor know what/how to measure my vision?   The requirements from the form are:     Acuity   Horziontal Field (degrees only)       Right  Left Both   Right Left   Without lenses 20/ 20/ 20/ Nasal ° °           Temporal ° °                           The Horizontal Field refers to the angualr extent of absolute limit of vision (in degrees) for nasal and tempral from fixation for each eye as measured fwith a large perimetry target       I guess worst case scenario, I could do the truck driver eye test here and all of the requirements should be included.   Thanks for your help!!
