Depending on the severity of their offence, traffic offenders are punished with points in Flensburg - these expire after different periods of time.

Most drivers obey traffic rules and speed limits – but unfortunately not all of them do.

Again and again there are particularly brazen contemporaries who, for example, use a rescue lane to make their own progress or ignore several speed limits in a row.

In such cases, in addition to a fine, points are often due in Flensburg - the catalog of fines was not tightened until November 2021.

But at what point does it become critical?

And: Can you also reduce points?

Points in Flensburg: how to mine them and when they expire

The Flensburg points account is commonly called "traffic offender file" - but in the official German of the authorities it is actually called "driving aptitude assessment system".

In addition, there is also the “Driver Aptitude Register” (FAER) – this records, for example, when a driver’s driving license is revoked.

Decisions on criminal offenses - such as coercion - and administrative offenses that affect road safety are also entered here.

"Traffic offender file": If you have more than eight points in Flensburg, your driver's license is gone

If the Flensburg account has eight or more points, the driver's license will be withdrawn from the traffic offender.

Of course you try to avoid that, especially if you depend on your driver's license for your job.

In fact, there is the possibility of reducing points - more precisely: one point.

And that is only possible under certain conditions.

Points in Flensburg: driving aptitude seminar can only help under certain conditions

According to the Federal Motor Transport Authority (KBA), if you have a score of up to five points, you can voluntarily take part in a so-called “driving aptitude seminar”.

However, this is only possible once every five years – and not if there are more than five points in the account.

Points in Flensburg are also automatically deleted, but the deadlines differ:

  • 2 years and 6 months: For decisions on traffic safety-impairing administrative offenses (e.g. cell phone use while driving)

  • 5 years: For decisions regarding administrative offenses that particularly affect road safety – such as alcohol-related offences.

    Also in the case of decisions on penalties without driver's license suspension or without an isolated blocking period for the granting of a driver's license.

  • 10 years: For decisions about penalties with disqualification or with an isolated blocking period for the issuance of a driver's license.

Points in Flensburg: Querying the stand is possible free of charge

Anyone who has already collected one or more points in Flensburg and is not entirely sure of their current status can query this online free of charge at the KBA.

However, an ID card with an activated online function is required.

A query by post is also possible, but then you have to send a copy of your identity card or passport.

And if you happen to be in the vicinity of the KBA in Flensburg, you can also personally inquire about the score during opening hours.
