Register of Professional Drivers Qualification (BQR)

The register of professional driver qualification includes all driver qualification cards (DQC) issued after May 23, 2021 (samples).

In addition, certificates of professional competence in initial qualifications, accelerated initial qualifications and periodic training on the basis of which the driver qualification card is issued, will be stored from October 2021.

In addition, other completed special measures will be recorded that may lead to a reduction in the amount of instruction and/or testing required for the qualification measures.

With the introduction of the Driver Qualification Card, the key number 95 previously entered in the driver's license will be replaced over a period of 5 years. The previous entries in the driver's license will remain valid until the expiration of the registered period.

The register of professional driver qualification stores

  • Driver qualification cards (DQC) issued in Germany;
  • Certificates of professional competence (CPC) for

    • initial qualifications,
    • accelerated initial qualifications,
    • periodic training and
    • other specifically completed measures.

Data reporting for driver qualification cards is carried out by Bundesdruckerei GmbH after the document has been sent. Data reporting for certificates of professional competence is carried out by a chamber of commerce and industry or a recognized training center after successful completion. The BQR stores the data relevant to the driver qualification cards or certificates of professional competence, but not the address of the person concerned.

The local driving licence authorities are responsible for the implementation of this legal matter. They receive applications for the issuance of a driver qualification card, check the prerequisites (participation in qualification measures, recognition of special measures) and clarify legal and procedural questions.
