Apply for issuance of the driver qualification certificate


Due to the Professional Driver Qualification Act, you as a professional driver are required to undergo special training in freight as well as passenger transport.

As proof of your qualification, a driver qualification certificate (FQN) has been issued on application since 23.05.2021. This gradually replaces the previous entry of the key number 95 in the card driver's license.

The FQN is a card similar in shape and size to the driver's license. It must be carried together with your driver's license.

The FQN is issued on

  • Acquisition of the initial qualification,
  • acquisition of the accelerated basic qualification as well as
  • Completion of the prescribed further training measure (every 5 years).

You must apply for the FQN in writing to your competent driving license authority.

  • You have your main residence in the Federal Republic of Germany.
  • You are a professional driver or in training as a professional driver.
  • You are in possession of a driving license of the classes C1, C1E, C, CE, D1, D1E, D or DE.
  • You have a basic qualification or further training.
  • The issuance, extension or renewal of the driver qualification certificate takes place exclusively within the scope of the application for an initial grant, extension, renewal or new grant of a driving license of class C or class D.
  • official proof of place and date of birth (identity card or passport)
  • a recent biometric passport photo
  • valid driver's license
  • proof of the (accelerated) basic qualification, or further training, respectively
  • if applicable, proof of other completed special training and further training measures within the meaning of the Professional Driver Qualification Ordinance (the training on the inland transport of dangerous goods for vehicle drivers or the training on the protection of animals during transport), if these are to be credited
  • if applicable, EU work permit or residence permit with a note of permitted employment

The fee is based on the schedule of fees for road traffic measures (GebOSt ). If the driver's license is sent directly to the home address, an additional shipping fee will be charged.
