Driver qualification

The Aldenhoven Testing Center offers you ideal conditions for research, development and safeguarding of individual systems and full vehicles. In order to make your tests safe, from January 2023 drivers will need a proof of qualification to drive on our test site as well. This increases your safety and ensures the occupational safety of our employees on site. The Aldenhoven Testing Center offers various qualifications in cooperation with Driving Concept.

The trainings are conducted in a corona-compliant manner. The event takes place under AHA+L (distancing, hygiene measures, face coverings and "air rooms") conditions.
