To obtain a license to drive a bus (category D), you will in any case have to undergo a „minor“ examination and, in addition to this, a transport psychological examination (VPU) if you are obtaining your license for the first time or are renewing it after you have reached the age of 50.
The examination procedure includes filling out a questionnaire, the physical examination itself, including a vision and hearing test, and a laboratory test. For first time drivers and those who want to have their driver’s license renewed at the age of 50, there is also a psychological evaluation of the driver (VPU). With the help of a state-of-the-art computer program, your reaction, attention and concentration are tested here. You are trained in each test exactly as long as you need to successfully complete it. No computer knowledge is required, so there is no need to be afraid here.
We advise you to choose the time for the test so that you come to the test when you are rested and well rested (!). The test duration is 45 minutes.
The basic examination costs 70 euros incl. USt. Please bring this amount with you to the examination in cash and without change.
The transport-psychological examination (VPU) costs an additional 80 Euros, so if you are obtaining your driver’s license for the first time or are renewing it after the age of 50, you will have to pay 150 Euros for all examinations ( in advance!)
In individual cases there may be additional costs related to more detailed laboratory analysis. For diabetics this is usually 20 euros, in other cases requiring clarification an additional 20 euros may be charged. A more expensive examination is exceptionally rare.
In our medical practice you can also pay cashless by bank card (Maestro, EC Karte) or credit card (VISA, MASTERCARD).
With some organizations there is an agreement to pay for the survey by a follow-up invoice. This form of payment is only possible on presentation of the corresponding voucher. If you have one, you must give it to us before the examination.
How do I arrange a deadline?
It is very quick and easy to make an appointment for a „small“ examination. You just have to call my practice at 0511 / 35 35 19 99
We try to stick to precise deadlines, so you usually don’t have to wait long for your turn, as long as you arrive on time. If you can’t make it to your appointment, call 24 hours in advance, in which case we can give your „number“ to others who want it.
In the case of „large“ examinations that include a transport psychological evaluation (VPU), we only work on a prepayment basis. Unfortunately, there have often been instances where we have provided specific dates for the exam and the drivers just don’t show up. For this reason, we now only schedule a date and time once money has been deposited into our account.
You can make a payment at our practice either in cash or with an EC card. If you pay by CREDIT CARD (VISA, American Express or MASTERCARD), you can arrange the dates over the phone without coming to the practice in advance.
