Withdrawal of German licence by Italian authority inadmissible

By DR. RODOLFO DOLCE | 09.12.2020

The Sardinian administrative court (TAR Sardegna v. 27 July 220 375/20) declared inadmissible the withdrawal of a German driving licence from a driver who had missed the deadline for re-registering his licence (two years after moving from Germany to Italy). He did not submit the application until four years later, after which the authority withdrew his licence. The Italian judges consider that, although an administrative offence is committed which is punishable by a fine, driving disqualifications may be imposed only where there are reasonable doubts as to the applicant's fitness to drive. These were not present in the case decided and the driving licence had to be reissued.
