When do I have to do the VKU?

It is best to take care of the VKU immediately after passing the theory test. Then you benefit from the VKU knowledge during the driver training and can apply it. You must have completed the course by the time you register for the exam at the latest. Since the VKU can no longer expire since January 1st, 2021, nothing speaks against attending the course early.

What does VKU mean?

VKU is the abbreviation for traffic education . As the name suggests, everything to do with traffic is covered in theory lessons.

How long does the VKU last?

With us, the traffic knowledge is done in two days. There are driving schools that spread the course over 4 days. The bottom line is that 8 hours must be attended. So two times four or four times two. Unfortunately, due to legal reasons, the course cannot be taken on one day.
