In a nutshell
You would like to exchange your driving licence for the forgery-proof driving licence in cheque card format or your driving licence has been lost or your name has changed. The competent driving licence authority of your place of residence requires a so-called card index transcript from you, as the old driving licence was issued by another driving licence authority.
A card transcript is an excerpt from the local driver's license register of the driver's license authority that issued the driver's license and provides information about driver's license data.
