Current corona protection measures

From now on, the "3G "rule (vaccinated, recovered, tested) applies to participation in the following training courses/exams. In addition to proof of vaccination/convalescene, a negative rapid antigen test ("Bürgertest") from an official testing centre (not older than 24h) must be presented.

  • Theory test and orientation drive for the airport driving licence
  • Theory training and practical test for the runway licence
  • Practical examination for the Passenger Boarding Bridge Permit
  • Practical exams for the Flightline Marshalling Permits (FLM1, FLM2, FLM3)
  • All frontal training in the premises of the driving licence office

Furthermore, the "3G" rule applies to normal visits to the driving licence office. Those who cannot present a vaccination/gene certificate need a negative antigen rapid test (citizen test) from an official testing centre (not older than 24h).

Furthermore, there is an obligation to wear a medical mouth-nose protection.

Airport driving licence (FF)

Driving on the lanes in the airport security area requires a successfully passed airport driving test. The training is to be completed in the form of an e-learning course (online training). You will receive the access data by e-mail from the driving licence office when you apply. You can complete the course at home on your PC or as well as at our office. 

Further notes on the airport driving licence:

  • Applications for airport driving licences (FF, PF) must be submitted in person or via e-mail to the driving licence office. Delivery by post or via third parties is not permitted.
  • Applicants need an EU driving licence of class A, B or higher, as well as an airport identification card authorising access to the sensitive security areas. 
  • The airport driving licence is issued for a limited period of 2 years.
  • An extension of the airport driving licence requires a new application and completion of the online training incl. theory test.
  • The airport driver's licence automatically and without exception loses its validity in the event of any withdrawal of the official driver's licence, which must be reported immediately by the person concerned to his/her superior. In addition, safety violations may result in a temporary revocation of the airport driving licence.
