The entire test takes about two hours. No preparation is necessary.

A two-phase reliability test is carried out:

Answering a questionnaire to find out important data from your CV.
Two questionnaires that record attitudes and personality traits that are important for dealing with weapons (e.g. emotional stability, social adaptability, self-control, reliability, tendency to aggression, willingness to take risks....)

This is followed by a personal interview in which you explain your reasons for acquiring a firearm and describe your CV. You will receive your certificate shortly after the test.

If there is any doubt regarding a positive assessment during the test, you can choose between a further assessment or discontinuation of the test.

If you continue, you will complete further questionnaires and have the opportunity to discuss with me in detail any points that may have caused you to have doubts about passing the test.

Important notes:

  • Do not consume alcohol the night before
  • Be well-rested and rested
  • No tranquilizers or similar substances that affect your physical condition.
  • Only take medication if it is permanently prescribed by a doctor (e.g. blood pressure medication).

Please bring: Photo ID and, if you wear glasses, be sure to bring your glasses. If you are unable to attend at short notice, please notify us and fix a new date!
