Shelter yourself from points – safety first!

Penalty points are allocated to all legally binding decisions recorded in the Register of Driver Fitness

These are offences which affect the road safety.

The road traffic offences recorded in the Register of Driver Fitness are evaluated according to the Driver Fitness Assessment System and are allocated up to three penalty points.

Three penalty points are allocated for criminal offences which are listed in Annex 13 to Section 40 FeV and where the driving licence is withdrawn or a separated ban for issuing a driving licence is imposed. Two penalty points are allocated for the other criminal offences listed in Annex 13.

The administrative offences referred to as having a particular adverse effect on road safety in Annex 13 to Section 40 FeV are evaluated with two penalty points. One penalty point is allocated to administrative offences which are listed as affecting road safety.

By applying a national catalogue of measures and/or penalty points, the Driver Fitness Assessment System ensures equal treatment of all persons who have committed offences in road traffic. It gives each citizen the opportunity to constantly monitor themselves the extent of their personal misconduct and to correct it in good time. By way of the voluntary participation in a road fitness seminar, the road user who has committed offences in road traffic can avoid that they reach eight penalty points and that their licence is withdrawn. The seminar helps the person affected to realise and remedy their deficiencies in their attitude to road traffic. Thus, the driver fitness assessment system constitutes an important instrument to improve road safety.
