Medizinisch-psychologisch-technische Obergutachtenstelle (MPTO)

Road Traffic Safety, Mobility and Aging

Short Information

In Germany, a medical-psychological assessment (MPA) is used by the authorities in deciding whether to revoke or reissue a driving licence. If you don´t pass this MPA, there is a possibility for an even more detailed and elaborate assessment (decisive expert opinion; “in German: Obergutachten”) of your fitness to drive a car in public traffic at the MPTO
