In order to drive these vehicles, you need a Passenger Transport Licence (FzF).
In order to obtain this permit, you must have a „minor“ examination and, in addition to this, a transport psychological examination (VPU) if you are obtaining your licence for the first time or if you are renewing it after reaching the age of 60.
The examination procedure includes the completion of a questionnaire, the medical examination itself, including an eye and hearing test, and a laboratory test. If you are obtaining your driver’s licence for the first time or renewing your licence after you have reached the age of 60, you also have to undergo a transport psychological assessment (VPU).
This tests your reaction, attention and concentration by means of a state-of-the-art computer programme. You will be trained in each test exactly as long as you need to successfully complete it. Computer knowledge is not required, so there is no need to be afraid here.
We recommend that you choose the time for the test so that you come to the test when you are rested and have had a good night’s sleep (!). The duration of the test is 45 minutes.
The VPU is not to be confused with the MPU (medical-psychological examination), the so-called „idiot-test“, which is offered by other organisations.
The basic examination costs 70 euros. Please bring this amount with you to the examination in cash and without change.
The transport psychology assessment (VPU) costs an additional 80 euros, so if you are obtaining your driving licence for the first time or renewing it after the age of 50, the whole examination will cost 150 euros.
In individual cases, there may be additional costs associated with more detailed laboratory tests. For diabetics, this is usually 20 euros; in other cases that require clarification, an additional 20 euros may be required. 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 organisations it is possible to pay for the survey with a follow-up invoice. This method of payment will only be possible on presentation of a voucher. If you have one, you must give it to us before the examination.
How do I make an appointment?
It is very quick and easy to make an appointment for a „small“ examination. You simply have to call my practice on 0511 / 35 35 19 99
We try to keep our appointments so that you usually do not have to wait long for your turn, as long as you arrive on time. If you cannot come at the appointed time, please call 24 hours in advance – we can then give your ’number‘ to others who wish to attend.
In the case of „large“ examinations that include a transport psychology unit (VPU), we only work on a prepayment basis. Unfortunately, there have often been instances where we have provided specific dates for examinations and drivers simply don’t show up for them. This is why we now only set a date and time once money has been received into our account.
You may pay at our practice either in cash or with a bank card (EC-Karte). If you pay by CREDIT CARD (VISA, American Express or MASTERCARD), you can arrange the time over the phone without coming to the practice in advance.
