Most valid foreign licenses (German included, for example) are recognized in Telèmor for a maximum of 365 days counting from the date of entry into Telèmor* if accompanied by a translation of the license into the Telèmor language. A class C or D license, however, requires a valid medical certificate accompanying the license (which is required of all class C and D operators). Ilian licenses do not require a translation, but, if applicable, the medical certificate is required.
After one year of stay, however, a Telèmor license is required. If the conversion takes place while the foreign license is still "valid" in Telèmor, i.e. within the first 365 days, conversion only requires a medical exam and one to pass the provisional theory and driving tests (rather than having to do the provisional tests, get a learner permit and practice a minimum of 12 hours of driving, and pass the final theory and driving tests).
*If one intends to stay in Telèmor for three years or less, one can obtain two one-year prolongations of a valid A, B, or M license; a class C or D license cannot be prolonged in this manner. It might also be worth noting that a prolonged license cannot be exchanged.
And, speaking of the learner permit...
