Exemption permit Belt-laying and helmet-carrying obligation: grant Unfortunately this specification of service has not yet been completely translated.

In order to protect road users, the legislator has stipulated that seat belts must be fitted during the journey and that safety helmets must be worn when driving motorcycles.

However, it is possible to be exempted from this obligation on request. The resulting significant safety risk is borne by the applicant.

Exemption from the belt-laying obligation is possible if

  • if it is not possible to wear seat belts for health reasons.
  • if the applicant's height is less than 150 cm.

Exemption from the helmet wearing obligation is possible,

  • if it is not possible to wear a safety helmet for health reasons.

Provided that the conditions for an exemption of a health nature are met, a medical or medical certificate must be presented that the exemption to be applied for is absolutely necessary for medical reasons. A diagnosis does not need to include the certificate.
For the height less than 150 cm, a medical certificate with the measured height must also be brought along.
