The FKR is used to store tachograph cards (e.g. driver cards) that are required to operate the tachograph (only in German) in lorries (trucks) and buses.
In connection with the introduction of the tachograph, the tachograph card register is kept at the Federal Motor Transport Authority for all cards issued (driver card, company card, workshop card and control card).
It is mainly used to store driver cards that are required by truck and bus drivers to operate the tachograph (only in German). This enables reliable recording and control of the driving and rest times (only in German) of the driving personnel. In this context, other types of tachograph cards (only in German) are required, the data of which are also stored in the register: Control Cards, Company Cards, Workshop Cards.
Central registration ensures that driving personnel are only in possession of one driver card.
Information is provided to authorised bodies in Germany and also to foreign bodies via the European information system TACHOnet.
