Which subjects should I do for A2

Driving license classes A, A1, A2 and AM

If you have reached the age of 24, you have the choice of acquiring a class A motorcycle driving license: level driving license - first performance-reduced class A2 and then later full motorcycle class A or direct entry into class A.

  • Level driving license only means acquiring the reduced performance class A2.

  • After 2 years, preparation in the driving school and practical test, acquisition of class A.

  • Direct entry into class A at 24: training and testing on a motorcycle with at least 44 kW.

Permitted motor vehicles

A.

All motorcycles and three-wheeled vehicles

A1

Motorcycles with a cubic capacity of no more than 125 cm³ and an engine output of no more than 11 kW, in which the power / curb weight ratio does not exceed 0.1 kW / kg, as well as three-wheeled motor vehicles up to 15 kW.

A2

Motorcycles with an output of up to 35 kW, in which the output / curb weight ratio does not exceed 0.2 kW / kg, which are not derived from a motorcycle with an output of more than 70 kW engine output.

AT THE

  • Light two-wheeled motor vehicles with a maximum speed determined by the design of not more than 45 km / h, a rated continuous power / net power of not more than 4 kW and an internal combustion engine with a displacement of not more than 50 cm³ or another form of propulsion.
  • Three-wheeled mopeds with no more than two seats, a maximum speed determined by the design of no more than 45 km / h, a rated continuous power / net power of no more than 4 kW, a maximum empty weight¹ of 270 kg and a positive-ignition engine with a displacement of no more than 50 cm³ or a compression-ignition engine with a displacement of not more than 500 cm³ or another form of propulsion.
  • Light four-wheeled street quads with a nominal continuous power / useful power of no more than 4 kW and four-wheeled light motor vehicles with a nominal continuous power / useful power of no more than 6 kW, each with no more than two seats, a maximum speed of no more than 45, determined by the design km / h, a maximum curb weight of 425 kg and a positive-ignition engine with a displacement of not more than 50 cm³ or a compression-ignition engine with a displacement of not more than 500 cm³ or another form of propulsion.

¹The only decisive factor is the entry in the vehicle documents. For hybrid vehicles and purely electric vehicles, the empty weight is entered without the drive battery.

A driving license is not required to drive a moped (single-track bicycles with an auxiliary engine and a maximum design speed of 25 km / h). However, a so-called test certificate must be carried with you. Anyone who already has a driver's license does not need a test certificate. The minimum age is 15 years.

Exam in case of class expansion

  • If you want to expand from class A1 to A2 or from A2 to A, you must have this driving license for at least two years and only need the practical test after preparing for an exam in a driving school.

  • If you want to move up from class A2 to A before the end of the 2 year period, you have the relief that you can complete an apprenticeship with a reduced number of hours.

Trial period and validity of the driver's license document

Probationary period

When acquiring a driver's license for the first time - with the exception of classes AM, L and T - the driver's license is issued "on trial". During the trial period of 2 years, misconduct will have special consequences.

Validity of the driver's license document

  • Issuance of the driving license since January 19, 2013: validity 15 years (also with extension of the driving license, exchange or replacement)
  • Issuance of the driving license before January 19th, 2013: staggered validity according to the time limit. When the time limit expires, the document will be exchanged administratively upon request, i.e. without an examination or examination.
