Driving license; ordering of measures according to the driving suitability assessment system (points system)
The traffic offenses and misdemeanors entered in the Driving Aptitude Register (FAER) at the Federal Motor Transport Authority in Flensburg are assessed with 1 to 3 points depending on their severity. In terms of content, the points system is intended not only to identify deficits in fitness to drive, but also to provide drivers with assistance in remedying these deficits and avoiding reaching 8 points and thus having their driver's license revoked.
The traffic offenses and misdemeanors entered in the Driving Aptitude Register (FAER) at the Federal Motor Transport Authority in Flensburg are assessed with 1 to 3 points depending on their severity. In terms of content, the driving aptitude rating system is intended to
- ensure equal treatment of road users who repeatedly violate traffic regulations,
- detect aptitude deficiencies of the driver as early as possible,
- to assist the driver in recognizing and remedying his or her aptitude deficiencies as early as possible in order to avoid reaching 8 points and thus the withdrawal of the driving license.
Based on notifications from the Federal Motor Transport Authority about the entries in the FAER, the driving license authority must take certain measures:
Anyone who reaches 4 to 5 points receives a warning and information about the driving suitability assessment system. If a driving suitability seminar is now attended voluntarily, 1 point can be reduced as a result. A corresponding reduction of points through voluntary participation in a driving aptitude seminar is only possible once in five years, and can also take place with a point score of 1 to 3. For the reduction of points, the certificate of attendance must be submitted to the driving license authority within two weeks of the end of the seminar.
A warning is issued for a score of 6 to 7 points. A driving aptitude seminar can also be attended voluntarily at this point; however, in this stage there is no possibility to reduce points.
Reaching 8 points or more leads to the revocation of the driving license.
