Hello I have a matter,
Namely, I’ll start from the beginning and describe it in short points.
▪ 2009 driving license revoked because of alcohol (in austria)
▪ 2010 serious traffic accident under the influence of alcohol (in Austria) suspension of 3 years
▪ Back in Germany since summer 2010
▪2013 mpu (failed) 1 year alcohol abstinence after white
▪ 2014 mpu passed and I had to do a course
▪2015 April get driver’s license again
▪2015 August red light overlooked with endangerment> one month driving ban, fine, points and renewed mpu because of the red light which was passed
▪ 2016 caught in February with cannabis in blood> Driving ban, penalty, points and I had to give six urine samples from August 2016 – December 2016 at the TuV assessment center this I have passed.
January 2017 renewed requirement of the driver’s license office because it had doubts I had to make a full MPU it was again found no drugs in my body.

At this last mpu I got a negative report although NO drugs were found in me and there are conditions in it therapy, abstinence (urine+hair analysis) abgeben.

At the moment I still have my driver’s license, can I keep my driver’s license in this time where I want to fulfill these requirements because otherwise I will lose my job where I need my driver’s license or do I have to hand it in despite the negative report although NO drugs have been found in me?

if you have not received a requirement to surrender the driver’s license, you can probably continue to use it. If you are unsure, you can also ask again at the driver licensing authority. Presumably, however, you have been given a deadline by which you must submit the expert opinion. If this is not done within the time limit, the driver’s license is then confiscated.

My driver’s license was revoked for 6 months at the beginning of September 2016 because of too many points. By the driving license withdrawal I became unemployed as a driver, and because I have worked many years abroad and the responsible employment office / job center paid me only in December 2016 the first time money I also lost my apartment and became homeless so that I now live forced with an acquaintance for subletting. MPU preparation course is completed and the costs for the MPU are also already paid, so I’m just waiting for the date for the MPU.
Now my real question ??
If my driver’s license is revoked for 6 months, why can the state / authority just revoke my license for so long, I’m trying to get an apartment since December, but as an unemployed mi dog there is no way. What it means financially for me to get the driving license still not back can imagine nobody. There should be compensation if the driver’s license is not returned so long after the expiration of the ban period.
As I said, 6 month rehab were ordered now he is already gone almost 10 months. The loss of earnings is huge.

Hello EX Trucker,

the ban period after a driver’s license withdrawal is min. 6 months. On request it can be shortened. As a rule, there is no compensation from the state for the period of driving license revocation. Please understand that we are not allowed to give you legal advice. For this you need to contact a lawyer.

With me it was an alcohol-points-crime-mix
Hardly a chance I tell you.
So a burning hatred for the FRG injustice junta I have never had. The authorities have already shat me 2 months ( vacation, sick ) until it was clear, it is due an MPU. Then a prep psycho who wanted abstinence…. for what ? I had lt expert opinion 0.46 and accident. Then the next place meant, driving training 200 € no, said the boss of the expert’s office. This is a matter of head. The MPUs have no structure and are all good will rip-offs.

Austria has ( although the national law would have been better ) illegally leaned on German authorities. Did not have legal protection to argue.
So now I am in Eastern Europe. I could have gained 1 year by not relying on Germans or Austrians. Exactly the blocking period crazy, this is rule of law, I praise Russia in those things.

you must not criticize mpu ?
then act here psychologists !

I have the following problem, I failed the MPU because of driving without a license.
Now I have told the driver’s license office that I did not appear at the MPU to avoid presenting him the negative opinion.
He does not want to admit me now but to a new MPU, before he has no letter from the MPU, where it says that the assessment has not taken place.

Hello Marvin,

Dear ladies and gentlemen,

My concern is the following.

I had 2 misdemeanors in the last 4 years on the road for distance measurements. Last year I had to go to the mpu to prove my fitness to drive and unfortunately I failed the first time. Since then I am no longer in possession of my driver’s license.

What do I have to expect now when I go to the mpu again.?

the MPU must be passed in order to be reinstated. You should prepare yourself for the examination accordingly. If you have given the negative result to the driver’s license office, the examiner will, if necessary, give the negative result to the driver’s license office. especially on the aspects that were not passed at that time.

The editorial staff of

after my last mpu (failed) now 2 years have passed and now I want to go to the 2nd mpu., is this possible without any problems or do I have to pay attention to anything?. Also wanted to go to a preparation course before.

The editorial staff of

because of 3 Verkersunfalle in the probationary period I was asked to complete an MPU to clarify the question "Will Mr. J. also violate the StVo in the future".
The report now says "Overall, Mr. J was able to credibly demonstrate a positive development. Despite these findings, no favorable prognosis can currently be made because the changes have not yet proven stable over a sufficiently long period of time, usually 6 months, as required by the assessment criteria."

What to do now?

The 6 months wait to be able to pass the MPU? The problem is that I still have my license, but according to the first letter from the driver’s license office after a certain period (which already expired) get revoked.

waiting? submit the negative report? Repeat immediately?

The MPU office can or. does not want to give me any information.

Thank you in advance.

the driver’s license office should be able to give you information about this.

I have a question… my friend had to go to the MPU and failed.

The report says he has a suspension of 6 months. Everywhere it says but, there is no lock for another MPU.
Is there now a lock or not?? Especially how to behave towards the registration office, which also makes pressure from wg. Expert opinion etc..

Sinn makes yes also certainly, not with the same organization to take the exam. Will be asked at the next test, whether an assessment has already taken place?

What should be the overall approach?? Nowhere can you be helped properly there. :-(

MPU negative I must again to the urinprobe? Test was on 05.10.2018

I had my driver’s license revoked in November 2017(2,4 Pr). In May 2018 I was awarded by the judge and state attorney the driver’s license class T(agriculture). The driver’s license office demanded an MPU .At this time, however, I had only 2 negative hair samples. MPU failed. After 14 months of driving license suspension I had again a MPU. unfortunately failed. Was also on an addiction talk15 hours. How should I continue. MPU place demands again a hair analysis.

I recently failed the MPU because of weed smoking. Hair analysis was flawless. I have to get into a permanent job with a driver’s license at short notice. Feel unfairly treated by the therapist.
What other possibilities would I have SHORT TERM to get my driver’s license again (contradiction, justice, commission own expert opinion……. ?. Would be very kind if you could help me further.

Hello I stand before the3 MPU . The psychologist said at the last MPU "if they come again, then to me, so that I see the progress".
The problem : the MOT again refuses to take the same psychologist.
How can I evaluate these two statements.

And I said yes I should come here after 1 year for re-examination, At the end of this mpu I got a bad assessment that I would not be insightful regarding my illness, then the DMV has withdrawn my driver’s license again with costs, I have then been to doctors and psychologists who have also told me that I am healthy and attest me this also, have called in a lawyer but the DMV said that they do not accept the opinions of other doctors because it is not a mpu with verkersmedizin and since I have fetched an appointment with the psychologists themselves he would be involved, I have 98 my driver’s license gemach never alcohol or drugs nor points or violations committed and now he should be gone forever according to DMV, I’m about to go to the press because the only psychological burden I have since then that I am done wrong and it is since 2014 until today 2020 the matter of driver’s license determines my life and last but not least I have fallen back into the resin

Hello I had my driver’s license revoked in 2013 due to cannabis in the blood , 2016 with a mpu
Preparation I am in the test Unfortunately with negative
Result, 2019 I am again In the mpu without
Preparation Again with negative result
My question would be after how many times do you get a suspension ? Or is there no regulation please for information .thank you

Hello , I lost my driver’s license in January 2011 because of drugs. I did an mpu in March 2013 this was negative. Then I tried it in septenber2019 again negative it was again 3 months drogenscreenig required in January 2020 was the last also negative. What should I do now? Hope for help.

Hello, I am on 25.08.In 2019 I was caught driving with 1.76 per mille alcohol, I am a first time offender and have had 12 hrs of classes with a traffic psychologist to prepare for the MPU. Then I have completed a 6 month alcohol screening from 16 November, the last urine collection was on 05.05.2020. The suspension period has been extended by the court until 28.04.2020 shortened. Now I had on 18.06.2020 my MPU and am probably failed. As I have heard, the report should not be sent to the driver’s license office under any circumstances. Both copies are sent to me. Since I do not want to do the next MPU at the same place, the documents must be sent again by the driver’s license office, how can I do this most cleverly without them noticing anything about the negative report?. I also have the problem that I do not know if I will get a new MPU appointment within 4 months after the last urine collection. Does it make sense to do a hair analysis for 3 months retroactively at the beginning of August, then I would have a complete record from November to August?. Am grateful for answers.

I am writing you my story and I have a question about it.
In December 2019 I have passed a drunk driving test. The result with a BAC of 1.97 was the MPU with a time limit until September 2020. The MPU appointment was today and is negative with the reason: No proof of abstinence over 12 months.(Huh?)
I still have my driver’s license. Can I avoid a chargeable confiscation if I hand in the FS myself ?

Hello, I gave up my driver’s license in March 21 due to too many points. Application for a new license, condition was MPU. I have not passed this. I take part in seminars with a traffic psychologist starting in October. Now to my question. The authority had set me a deadline for submission of the MPU. Since I did not pass it, the authority writes me to take back my application for "re-issuance" of the driver’s license (free of charge) or the authority rejects my application with a charge. What does this mean for me?
FG mstruppi

Hello! I am a citizen of the Republic of Lithuania, 20 years ago was deprived of the rights for alcohol, now in 2019 already in Germany deprived of the rights for alcohol 1.73 on 10monate,appointed MPU, the first exam refused, did not submit the certificate of the psychologist although I had it! In the answer they recommended to contact a psychologist! Refused the test 2 times again, based on the fact that the blood test is not proof of abstinence! In the answer it was recommended to do a urine or hair test for one year. what to expect the third time? because they have the right to constantly say that I may repeat the mistake in the future. It is very expensive for me to do everything as a translator is needed. has a psychologist the right to gain such fate because of personal dislike of visitors? I have fully realized my mistake and I am sure that I will not allow myself this act, this is a great shame for me.

we may give unfortunately no free legal advice. In this case, contact a lawyer for traffic law.
