Penalty procedure


A fine procedure shall be initiated if there is a serious administrative offence. Typical examples are not minor speeding, violation of the 0.5 per mille limit, traffic violations on motorways, etc. Corresponding administrative offences are listed in detail in the catalogue of fines. The catalogue of fines lays out standard rates for the amount of the fine and also provides for the order of a driving ban for certain infringements.

The fine procedure is more complex than the warning money procedure. In the fine procedure, the rules on criminal proceedings apply in principle. Fines usually amount to at least 40.00 euros. A final decision on fines is always linked to the entry of at least one point in the central traffic register.

Once the person concerned has had the opportunity to comment and the facts have been clarified, the authority issues a notice of fine. If there is evidence that the offence is a criminal offence, the administrative authority shall hand the case over to the Public Prosecutor's Office.

Consultation sheet:

  • is always sent to the vehicle owner
  • the person concerned is given the opportunity to comment on the allegation of an administrative offence
  • The driver of the vehicle can be named (e.g. for company cars)

If the accusation is agreed, there is a payment period of one week.

Legal claim in the context of the hearing:

  • no legal right to a rebuttance
  • The managing authority may issue a fine notice without further notification.

Fine notice:

  • Setting the fine
  • Collection of fees, expenses in accordance with the Law on Administrative Offences
  • The person concerned may appeal within two weeks, otherwise the decision will be admonished and enforceable.


  • in case of lack of reaction: execution until attachment
  • in the event of a timely opposition, will be re-examined

The Central Penalty Office is responsible for the prosecution and prosecution of administrative offences in road traffic (flowing traffic). It can be reached by calling 0391/5075-400.
