Road passenger transport apply for certificate of professional competence issuance

Service Description

For commercial road passenger transport (bus, cab or rental car companies) you need a permit. One of the requirements for the issuance of the permit is proof of professional suitability.The entrepreneur or transport manager/person appointed to run the business must be professionally suitable.

If you or the transport manager/the person appointed to manage the business can prove professional suitability through at least ten years of managerial activity in a company that operates passenger road transport, then the Chamber of Industry and Commerce can issue you with a corresponding certificate of professional competence. This activity must have been carried out in the period of ten years from 4.12.1999 to 3.12 2009 without interruption in one or more member states of the EU. The end of the activity must not be more than two years ago.

In addition, the professional qualification can also be proven by a recognized equivalent final examination (e.g. as a businessman in railroad and road transport with a focus on passenger transport, provided that they were started or successfully completed before 4.12.2011).

Alternatively, professional suitability can be demonstrated by passing a specialist examination before the Chamber of Industry and Commerce (IHK).
