Interesting link,(if it works ok),or can check site.

A German driver lost his license due to drink driving.
He applied and received a Polish one without even leaving Germany.
The German court questioned its validity as he was banned in Germany.
The driver won his case and is legal to continue driving.
Under EU law if the license is valid in the country of issue, he is free to carry on driving!

Seems to contradict some earlier opinions on this thread.

The court in the German state of Rhineland-Palatinate has ruled that a man, who lost his driver’s license twice for drunk driving and applied for a new Polish licence, is allowed to keep it. He applied for the driver's licence through a Berlin firm, which registered him under an address in Stettin, Poland.

Traffic authorities doubted the validity of the license and confiscated it. The man has already appealed the case once, but the upper administrative court in Koblenz found in a second appeal that according to EU law, the licence must be recognised in Germany too. The country which issues the licence is responsible for determining the eligibility of a driver, the court said.
