Providers of courses for the restoration of fitness to drive; application for recognition

The government of the Upper Palatinate grants official recognition to institutions that conduct courses to restore the fitness to drive of drivers who have been convicted of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.


Applicants for a driving licence must meet the physical and mental requirements for this (fitness to drive). If the driving licence authority has doubts about the suitability of an applicant, the applicant is checked by an assessment centre for driving suitability. If the suitability doubts have arisen due to alcohol or drug conspicuity, the assessment centre can recommend a course to restore the client's fitness to drive following the medical-psychological examination (MPU).

These courses are run by institutions that must be officially recognised for this purpose.

  2. Requirements of Annex 15 to Section 70 (2) of the Driving Licence Ordinance (FeV)
