More safety

Initiatives, training and testing for more safety

We contribute to ensuring safety on the roads by funding road safety campaigns. The safety initiative “Safety Check” permitted 14,000 young licence holders across Germany to have their vehicles inspected at DEKRA centres free of charge. “Safety Plus” is concerned with truck and trailer certification and is, therefore, involved in optimising the active and passive safety of commercial vehicles.

And, last but not least, we are actively involved in driving licence procedures: in Berlin and Brandenburg we are  participating in a pilot project aimed at using computers to facilitate handling the theoretical component of driving licence tests, a change which is due to be implemented across the country in the coming years.
