Passenger transport company: approval - specialist examination

Source: Zuständigkeitsfinder Schleswig-Holstein (Linie6PLus)

Service Description

For commercial road passenger transport, you need a permit.

One of the prerequisites for granting the permit is proof of professional suitability. This means that the entrepreneur or the person appointed to conduct the business must be professionally suitable.

The professional aptitude can be proven by a specialist examination before the locally responsible Chamber of Industry and Commerce (IHK). Locally responsible is the IHK, in whose district the person to be examined has his residence.

The examination consists of two written parts and, if necessary, an oral part.

Alternatively, professional aptitude for road passenger transport by car (with the exception of taxi and rental car transport) can also be demonstrated by at least five years of managerial activity in a company that operates road passenger transport. However, the end of this activity may not be more than two years ago, a corresponding certificate of expertise is issued by the IHK.
Professional aptitude for bus and coach transport can also be demonstrated by at least ten years of managerial activity in an undertaking which operates passenger transport by coach and bus. That activity must have been carried out without interruption in one or more Member States of the European Union during the period of 10 years preceding 4 December 2009.
It can also be proven by a recognised equivalent final examination (e.B as a merchant in rail and road transport with a focus on passenger transport). In this case, the certificate must be submitted to the final examination.
