THE PROFESSIONAL CHECK FOR PROFESSIONAL DRIVERS
As a professional driver, you need to do more, react faster, drive more safely and flexibly, assess risks better, and be alert and resilient. Who knows that better than you.
While truck drivers only have to prove a general medical examination 5.1 FEV as well as an examination of the eyesight 6.2 FEV, passenger carriers (bus, cab, ambulance) need an additional test as well as an expert opinion on the special mental performance requirements (5.2 FEV).
