Re: any body knows what Aberkennung auslandischer Fuhrerau is?

quick internet translator gives something like

"deprivation of a foreign tyrant"

What's the context ? Sounds like rant that someone would make - or a racist remark, or a comment about the politics (I could imagine something like this being said about the situation in various countries at the moment)...

Of course, I am completely illiterate in German, so who knows

Anerkennung ausländischer Führerausweise = Recognition of foreign driver licenses
Aberkennung ausländischer Führerausweise = Non-Recognition of foreign driver licenses

Think the OP meant "Aberkennung" not "Anerkennung" = not exactly the same thing.

ANerkennung = recognition
Aberkennung = revocation

Well, I'm glad I don't have to translate German every day...

Good luck with your driver's licence... reminds me, I have to do mine soon!

Wasn't sure, that's why I ended up giving both. The "Anerkennung..." phrase is widely found, but the other is not, and "b" and "n" are right beside each other on the keyboard, so I opted to cover both options.

Re: any body knows what Aberkennung auslandischer Fuhrerau is?

Aberkennung of your foreign license may occur if you fail a test here. You will then get your foreign license back with a stamp on it "Not valid in Switzerland". In order to get a Swiss license you will then need to go through the normal licensing procedure.
