Workshop card issue

Service Description

The workshop card is a tachograph card for

  • approved manufacturers of tachographs,
  • vehicle manufacturers,
  • workshops and
  • their responsible specialists such as fitters or technicians.

As an entrepreneur or as an authorized representative or authorized person, you can apply for this from the responsible office.

Your responsible specialists use the workshop card to install, check and calibrate digital tachographs and to download their data.

The workshop card is PIN-protected. The personal PIN number is sent to the responsible specialist at their home address. Specialists may only have one workshop card per employment relationship and may only use it there. The workshop card is the property of the company.

The workshop card is valid for 1 year from the date of personalization by the Federal Motor Transport Authority (KBA). You can apply to renew your card at the earliest 1 month before the card expires.

You must immediately report the theft or loss of the workshop card to the competent authority that issued the workshop card.
