Removal of points in the driving suitability register

You can reduce points by means of a driving aptitude seminar. The driving aptitude seminar consists of traffic education and psychological elements. With a score of 1 to 5 points, you can voluntarily attend a driving aptitude seminar. This allows you to reduce 1 point once within 5 years.

If you score between 6 and 7 points, you can also attend the driving aptitude seminar voluntarily, but without deducting points.

The driving aptitude seminar is intended to clarify the causes of the defects and to identify ways of remedying them. The outcome of the consultation is intended only for the person concerned and only communicated to the person concerned. However, the person concerned shall receive a certificate of participation for submission to the competent authority.
