Some call it freedom, but in Germany, you can actually take a beer with your meal and still drive legally. So here’s the alcohol limit in Germany.
Young drivers and drivers with new licenses
Since August 1, 2007, is the alcohol limit for all drivers under 21 years of 0.0 per thousand. If you are older than 21 years but have taken driving license within a period of two years, the same rules apply. This law was added when it was found that one-third of all drivers who are injured or killed in an accident have consumed alcohol and are between 18-24 years.
A penalty for people with licenses issued in Germany gets 125 euros in fines, two dots in the traffic register and an extended probationary period of two years.
Private motorists in Germany
The general blood alcohol limit in Germany is 0.5 but is not recommended to take a chance with. If you cause an accident, you need to have a maximum of 0.3, otherwise, there is a risk that you are convicted of drunk driving anyway.
The above applies to private drivers. Are you a professional driver always applies 0.0. To conclude with a disclaimer that means that drinking and driving, regardless of age never go together. It is foolish to take chances. Furthermore, it becomes very hard to suddenly be in Germany with his car and driving license revoked.
