Why do I need a permission ist unbedingt falsch?

In diesem Kontext ist permission ein unzählbares Substantiv.

Das "a" ist überflüssig!

Ist "Why do I need a permit" falsch?

Good question. It depends on what the Germain word 'Erlaubnis' means precisely (and my German isn't good enough to help). I can tell you the difference in English (roughly). A permit is more precise than permission. You need a permit to drive: an official statement to that effect.

In school children need permission to go to the bathroom, but it does not usually require a permit. A permit suggests that the government gave permission. The permission might be formalized through a piece of paper called a 'permission slip' though.

I think "why do I need an authorization" is a correct translation, however Duo doesn't accept it! (Oct 25, 2018).
