Ein Kultureller Leckerbissen Der Führerschein Did you know that in Germany you have to be 18 years of age in order to get a driver's license? Kids in the US have a hard time imagining life for another 2 years without a driver's license. Teens in Germany aren't in such dire straits due to the incredible public transportation system. Additionally, in order to get a driver's license, families must often pay upwards of $2000. It is safe to say if that were the cost in the US, lots of kids would have to wait until 18 as well!
