From the 1st of January 2021, there is no limit to how many permits you can apply for, and you apply here (open new window).
It is the transport manager that must apply, and for this he or she needs an employee signature. The employee signature must be applied for by the owner of the business, and you can contact Nets for more information about this.
The employment contract of the transport manager must be attached to the application, if the transport manager doesn’t own the company. The transport manager and the owner of the business may be the same person or different individuals.
When filling out the application, you need to provide information about pay and collective agreement, and the transport manager must give consent to the Danish Road Traffic Authority to access and process the criminal records of the transport manager and information about public debt of the transport manager and the company.
The company’s public debt or the public debt of the transport manager cannot be 50.000 Danish kroner or more.
If the transport manager has lived or live in another country, he or she also needs to send their criminal record from that country. The record must be original and sent by post to the Danish Road Traffic Authority by the proper authority itself. You, the owner or the transport manager cannot have been in contact with this record.
The address is:
The Danish Road Traffic Authority
Documentation for equity must be provided when requested for by the Danish Road Traffic Authority. The documentation must show an equity of 40.000 Danish kroner for the first permit and 20.000 Danish kroner for every subsequent permit, and the sum must therefore be calculated depending on the number of permits.
The company’s equity can be documented in the following ways:
- Declaration of equity given by a chartered or registered auditor.
- Collateral arrangement such as a guarantee provided by a credit institution or an insurance company.
- The company’s latest annual report which has been revised or examined by a chartered or registered auditor.
- The company’s opening balance when the company has yet to submit their first accounts.
The Danish Road Traffic Authority may need additional information. If this is the case, a request for this will be sent by digital mail to the e-Boks of the transport manager or to the company e-Boks, depending on which body the information pertains.
The answer to the application will be sent by digital mail to the company e-Boks, after which the administrative fee needs to be paid to issue the permit or permits. The fees are listed here (open new window).
The permits are valid for ten years and they allow a company to provide commercial passenger transport services in Denmark, such as taxi services, limousine services and public authority transport services.
Note that to provide taxi services as a haulier, the company must be connected to a dispatch office for commercial passenger transport since taxi services can only be sold through there.
