Renew company card


The company cards shall be issued or delivered to the entrepreneurs or the persons appointed to represent them by law, the articles of association or the partnership agreement.

The entrepreneurs are responsible for the proper use of the cards. In addition, they must ensure that the company card is entered into the tachograph at the beginning and end of the use of the vehicle for the company in order to allocate the use of the vehicle to the company.

The entrepreneurs are responsible for the regular storage of the data read out from the tachographs and must hand them over on request of the authorities or their representatives.

The application must be made by the entrepreneur or a person authorized to represent the company or an authorized person in person or online.

Company cards are issued impersonally to the company and are generally sent directly to the company. The company follow-up card is valid for 5 years from the date of issue by the Kraftfahrtbundesamt (Federal Motor Transport Authority). The validity of the follow-up card follows the term of the expiring company card. The renewal must be applied for in good time before the card expires. The application may be submitted no earlier than 6 months before the expiration date.

Entrepreneur cards are issued to the entrepreneur or the persons and vehicle owners appointed to represent the entrepreneur by law, by the articles of association or by the shareholders' agreement, whose drivers carry out transport operations that fall within the scope of Regulation (EC) No. 561/2006 or who have to comply with the driving and rest periods pursuant to Section 1 of the German Driving Personnel Ordinance (FPersV) or who have to download data from the mass memory pursuant to Section 57a (3) of the German Road Traffic Licensing Regulations (StVZO).
