Driving instructors; application for examination of the suitability of the methods and media of a traffic education sub-measure.

The examination of the suitability of the methods and media of a traffic education sub-measure, insofar as teaching and learning methods or media other than those specified in Annex 16 of the Driving License Ordinance are used, shall be carried out upon application.


The driving aptitude seminar in the sense of § 4a of the Road Traffic Act (StVG) consists of a traffic pedagogical and a traffic psychological submeasure; these are to be coordinated by mutual information of the respective seminar leaders.

The traffic pedagogical sub-measure aims to impart knowledge of risk behavior, improve hazard cognition, stimulate self-reflection and develop behavioral variants and comprises two modules in accordance with Annex 16 of the Driving License Ordinance (FeV).

In addition to the teaching and learning methods and media mentioned there, methods and media that ensure the same learning success may also be used.

The evaluation of alternative teaching and learning methods or media is the responsibility of the Government of Upper Palatinate.


The suitability of alternative teaching and learning methods or media for the traffic education submeasure is determined if the submitted concept ensures the same learning success.


The application must be submitted to the Government of Upper Palatinate in writing or electronically (by e-mail).

If necessary, an independent scientific opinion from a "suitable" body will be used to evaluate the application.

If the requirements are met, the suitability of the methods and media will be determined in the form of a notice.

The other governments and the district administrative authorities will also receive a printed copy of the decision.
