C95

Initial qualification and further training

Initial qualification:

Professional drivers who obtained permission to drive classes C1 and C after 9 September 2009 must provide proof of initial qualification. This is done by successfully passing a theory examination before an examination Board (written and oral) as well as a practical driving test (90-minute test drive). The code C95 will then be recorded on the driving licence. This must be entered by the driving licence authority responsible for the licence holder’s main residence.


Further training: 

Drivers of vehicles in class C1 and C who transport goods professionally must complete further training totalling 35 hours every five years (5 modules, each lasting 7 hours). These modules, three of which must be completed at an authorised training facility, can be taken as pure theory or with a practical element. After participating in the individual training modules, course participants will receive confirmation from us, with which the licensing authority (district commission, chief of police) will issue them with a new driving licence with the “C 95” entry – together with the deadline for when they must provide evidence of the next training course.

Further training

Requirements

The courses for initial qualification and further training are aimed at truck and bus drivers whose main residence is in Austria or who work for a company located in Austria. This also includes contractors who drive trucks themselves.

A prerequisite is that driving the vehicle is their “main occupation”. It is important to note that there is no flexibility regarding time. For example, if a carpenter with a class C driving licence stands in for a full-time truck driver who is off sick and takes responsibility for delivering roof trusses himself for a few days, he is considered to be a “full-time” truck driver and therefore requires further training..

Training content

At the Berger Academy, the following training content is taught, all of which forms part of the examination:

  • Improving efficient driving behaviour
  • Brake and safety technology
  • Economic driving style (optimising fuel consumption)
  • Load securing
  • Regulations for commercial transport
  • Labour and social welfare regulations
  • Health, transport and environmental safety


These subject areas are explored in depth and revised during the course of the further training, focussing on road safety and more efficient fuel consumption.
