Experts and examiners for motor vehicle traffic; application for recognition

Prerequisite for recognition as an inspector or expert (with partial powers).

The recognition is granted if the applicant:

  • holds a driver's license for motor vehicles of all classes,
  • has worked for at least one and a half years as an engineer or, if only recognition as an inspector with partial authority is being applied for, as a master craftsman in a technical inspection center for motor vehicle traffic, a motor vehicle company or a motor vehicle factory,
  • has completed at least six months of training in a technical testing laboratory for motor vehicle traffic,
  • is a member of a technical inspection body for motor vehicle traffic,
  • is professionally suitable (the professional suitability must be proven in an examination).


The technical inspection body with which the applicant is/will be employed submits an application for recognition of the applicant as an expert for motor vehicle traffic or inspector for motor vehicle traffic


If, after the expiry, withdrawal or revocation of the recognition as an Expert or Examiner, a new recognition is applied for within two years, the examination shall not be carried out unless facts exist which give rise to doubts about the professional qualification of the applicant. When calculating the two-year period, the period of a previous suspension of recognition shall be taken into account.
