Tempo 100 for British coaches on german highways



The German Road Trafic Law has changed:
All coaches registered in a member country of the European Union or a country of the European Economic Area with first registration on 08.12.2007 and later, do neither need a tempo 100 permit nor a tempo 100 sticker, if they have a certificate of their national traffic authority in german language, that they are tested for tempo 100 regularly.

I will not issue tempo 100 permits for these coaches anymore !!

All coaches with first registration before the 08.12.2007 must have a tempo 100 permit and sticker like before.
I also have to renew the permit:

  • after it has run out,
  • if the owner changes,
  • if the reg.-nr. changes.

The German ministry of transport has entrusted the Straßenverkehrsamt Aachen to issue permits for west european coach operators to drive on german highways with tempo 100.This means for british coach operators: If you get a new coach without a tempo 100-test-certificate of a German test-station (example: TÜV for EvoBus in Ulm, TÜV Mannheim for DaimlerChrysler), you ask the Department of Transport in Swansea -DOT-, to get a test-certificate, called PSVC 6. You have to send me this test-certification and the due fee (see below). I will send the certificate to drive tempo 100 on German highways together with a sticker 100 to the DOT. The sticker must be sticked into the back window of the coach. If the coach has no back window, please let me know. I also have stickers for outside. If you buy an old coach of a previous owner, please send me the old certificate or a copy together with the fee (see below). Some days before your certificate expires, you send it or a copy to me together with the fee (see below). All certificates are valid for three years and must be renewed then. The costs for tempo 100:

New certificate                          71.60 €
Renewal                                    35.80 €
Renewal of invalid certificate    71,60 €
Change of ownership                71.60 €

  • To help the operators which follow the rules to get the tempo 100-permit and sticker quick, I must send all applictions forms back without processing which are uncomplete or otherwise not correct.
