Renewal of driver’s license

My friend told me that she had been detained at the police station for 5 hrs., as she forgot to renew the driver’s license. We laughed about it but afterwards, I suddenly remembered that the German driver’s license was no longer valid forever, but that it needs to be renewed every 15 years or so. When you’ve been away from a country for a long time, your sense of the country has frozen at the time you left the place, so I have no idea when this new law had been introduced, but I know it hadn’t been a recent thing. Which gets me very worried whether or not, I can still have my license renewed after all these years…. It took me a year and a half to get this and when something had been hard earned, you’re reluctant to let it go.

Another “to do list” added at this busy time…
