Decisions on actions regarding the driving licence are not taken by the Kraftfahrt-Bundesamt (KBA) but by the respective competent driving licence authority.
The following decisions are recorded in the Register of Driver Fitness:
The decisions recorded in the Register of Driver Fitness are evaluated depending on kind and severity of the road traffic offence and are allocated up to three penalty points and are deleted after certain periods of time. When a certain number of penalty points is reached according to the Driver Fitness Assessment System the Kraftfahrt-Bundesamt notifies the responsible local road traffic authority of the penalty point count of the concerned person.
