You can start with 16 1/2 years

The training does not differ from that of the 18 year olds

The only difference comes from the authority:

To apply for a driving license, we need an extra form on which the legal guardians declare their consent and on which all companions must be named. The number of companions is not limited, you only need copies of ID and driver's license (front and back)!

Additional costs for the additional application are around € 8.70 and € 11 for each number of companions

Who can accompany?

Father, mother, grandma, grandpa, uncle, aunt, sister, brother or someone who does not come from the family ???

YES for example: employer

The companion only has to meet the following requirements:
Minimum age: 30 years
Driver's license: Class B for 5 years
Points in Flensburg: max. 3

What tasks do the companions have?
What is the legal basis?
Who is responsible for the trips?
Are there any legal risks?
Are there any successes / statistics?
What does my daughter / son learn in the driving school?
What is new that the companions should also know about?
Is something different today being taught than before?

Questions about questions? Then just ask us, we will be happy to provide you with further information about accompanying driving!
