WORLD'S FIRST DRIVER'S LICENCE
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

What was the world's first driver’s license?

While some may think that the first driver’s license was issued in order to maintain automobile safety on the roads, it was actually issued so that one man could drive his automobile, much to the discontent of his neighbors.

Karl Benz, who also happens to be the inventor of the automobile as we know it today, wanted to drive his Motorwagen through town however, it caused a very unpleasant smell and an even worse noise and his neighbors would often complain and ask him to please stop driving his automobiles. In order to be able to drive his car in peace, Karl Benz applied to the Grand Ducal authorities and received a driver’s license that allowed him to drive his car on the roads.

At the start of the 20th century, driver’s license began to be distributed throughout many countries, on an ‘if needed’ basis. Not only drivers were required to carry a license. It wasn’t until in 1910 Germany began requiring all driver’s to carry a License.
