Logo KBA

The Kraftfahrt-Bundesamt (KBA), Germany’s Federal Motor Transport Authority, is within the scope of the Bundesministerium für Verkehr und digitale Infrastruktur (BMVI), Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure.

About the Data Centre

The KBA makes important contributions towards road safety, environmental protection, and the provision of information on road traffic. Supported by the BMVI, the research data centre Forschungsdatenzentrum im Kraftfahrt-Bundesamt (FDZ im KBA) provides anonymised quantitative microdata for scientific research.  The FDZ im KBA provides scientific use files (SUF) for downloading. Data documentation is available on the website (only in German).

The data offered by the FDZ im KBA includes at the moment information about additions to the Register of Driver Fitness (Fahreignungsregister) which records the following decisions:

  • Legally binding decisions concerning criminal or administrative offences if they are listed in Annex 13 to Section 40 Fahrerlaubnis-Verordnung (FeV)
  • Decisions made by the driving licence authorities concerning the withdrawal, refusal or newly grant of driving licences
  • Decisions concerning measures provided for by the Fahreignungs-Bewertungssystem, the Driver Fitness Assessment System

Office space and a local workstation for visiting scientists providing less anonymised data will be available in the near future.

Available data

Additions to the Register of Driver Fitness (Fahreignungsregister) in 2015 to 2018 (only in German).
