Hello @paolo
I want to Auslandbehorde to apply for driving license but they told me to bring original document or your home country driving license which i dont have it. I try to convince them with my Aufenthaltsgestattung with bank deatils and my health card from AOK but not success. I want to know is it possible for asylum to get driving license with vaild Aufenthaltsgestattung only. I can provide you more details through email  or whatsapp.
perhaps we can get some more insight from @sophie or @avenir ? Any idea? Also @Marcel could have some tips for you. I'll try to get more eyes on this question
As far as I know, having the original license from the country of origin is mandatory to get an approval. Yet, of course you can make a new driving license in a driving school here in Germany, this is open to everyone with

Hallo @Avenur,
Thanks for that info. I want to make new driving license here in Germany. I want to Ausländerbehörde this previous tuesday to talk about this. But did not work well. You know the bureaucratic. Can you send me email stating it clear that i should told them this rather than explaining this and that.

If you can call and asked them. That will be better for me. I am sorry my german is not so good.

Thanks again @paolo, @Avenir @Marcel

Hi Sandy,

the highest German court recently held that you are allowed to apply for driving licence also with Aufenthaltsgestattung and no other documents. You should be able to prove in some way your age.

You can refer the Auslanderbehörde to the following link which summarizes the ruling of the court:
http://www.lto.de/recht/hintergruende/h/bverwg-urteil-3c1615-fahrerlaubnis-asylbewerber-ohne-pass-aufenthaltsgestattung-eigene-angaben-genuegt/

Pls let me know if you continue to have problems with the Ausländerbehörde.
