Reduction of points in the driving fitness register

You can reduce points through 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 fitness seminar. So you can reduce 1 point once within 5 years.

With a score of 6 to 7 points, you can also attend the driving fitness seminar voluntarily, but without deducting points.

The driving fitness seminar is intended to clarify the causes of the defects and to show ways to eliminate them. The result of the consultation is intended only for the person concerned and can only be communicated to him. However, the person concerned shall receive a certificate of participation for submission to the competent authority.
