Driving school is a term used for a predominantly private school to acquire theoretical and practical knowledge of driving motor vehicles. Driving instructors are state-recognised teachers under the Driving Instructors Act (FahrlG) and its regulations. They train their pupils, the majority of whom are persons who wish to obtain a licence to drive motor vehicles (driving students) in theory and practice in accordance with the requirements of the Driving Student Training Regulations. The training, on the other hand, may only take place in a driving school. The driving school has to meet certain criteria. Classrooms must have teaching materials for the design and visualization of teaching and visualisation during the theoretical teaching. The details of the teaching aids required by Paragraph 11(1) (6) of the Far Et (6) FahrlG and Section 4 FahrlGDV are given in the Directive on the equipping of driving schools with teaching aids, which was published in the traffic bulletin: Minimum age 25 years There must be no facts that make him or her appear unreliable for running a driving school. There must be no facts justifying the assumption that the applicant cannot fulfil the obligations under Paragraph 16 of the FarE. possess the driving licence for the class for which he or she applies for a driving school permit. full-time work as a driving instructor or driving instructor of at least 2 years in the context of an employment relationship with the owner of a driving school Participation in a course of at least 70 hours to 45 minutes on driving school administration .

The applicant for a driving school permit, the holder of a driving training permit issued in another State, which entitles to self-employed training in the driving student training in that State, or is a proof of self-driving training issued in another State, is granted, by way of derogation from Paragraph 11 (1) point 3 to 5 FahrlG, if the conditions for the issue of a driving permit of the relevant class are fulfilled in accordance with this Act and the legal regulations adopted on the basis of this Act. If the previous driving instruction permit entitles to the temporary and occasional training of driving students, a corresponding addition is affixed in accordance with Section 2a (1) sentence 2 FahrlG. If the qualification acquired so far differs from the requirements for the entry of driving instructors prescribed in Germany and the difference is not compensated by knowledge acquired by the applicant in the course of his professional experience, the granting of the driving training permit may be made conditional on participation in an adaptation course or an aptitude test in accordance with Section 2a (2) of the Driving Act. The same applies to the issue of a driving licence for temporary and occasional training for trainees, which may be subject to a prior aptitude test in accordance with Paragraph 2a(3) of the Driving Code, if there are significant differences between the applicant's professional qualifications and the training and examination required at home. The Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure has laid down further requirements for the content and timing of the adaptation course as well as for the implementation of the aptitude test in the implementing ordinance on the Driving Instructors Act. Thereafter, the applicant must prepare written practice papers in the adjustment course, which is not longer than three years, and to give theoretical and practical probationary lessons. The subject of the adaptation course is the special features of German road traffic law and German road traffic conditions as well as German driving instructor law. The adaptation course is carried out by the driving instructor training centres recognised in accordance with Section 22 of the Driving Instructors Act. Participation in the adaptation course may be replaced by successful participation in an aptitude test. The aptitude test consists of a written and oral examination of the specialist as well as teaching samples in theoretical and practical driving lessons. The Professional Qualifications Assessment Act does not apply, with the exception of Paragraph 17 of the profession. In the case of a legal entity (e.g. GmbH, UG), a legal representative of the legal entity (e.g. managing director of a limited liability company or UG) must be appointed to be responsible for the management of the training company. According to the social contract, the latter must generally be entitled to represent the company alone or to represent the driving school and fulfil the above-specified personal and factual requirements. The responsible management must provide assurance that the obligations under Section 16 of the German Driving Code will be fulfilled in accordance with the circumstances, in particular when taking into account the professional obligations.
