8. StVZO Approval

Do I need a StVZO approved light?

Answer: In Germany, according to the Road Traffic Licensing Regulations (Straßenverkehrs-Zulassungs-Ordnung, StVZO), bicycle lighting must meet specific requirements to be approved. If you are cycling on public roads, you need to use StVZO-approved lighting. Here are some key requirements for bicycle lamps under the StVZO:


a. Front Light: The front light must emit white light and be adjusted so that it does not dazzle other road users.


b. Rear Light: The rear light must emit red light and be clearly visible.


c. Reflectors: In addition to the lights, reflectors are mandatory – white at the front, red at the rear, and on the pedals and wheels.

d. Power and Visibility: The lights must be powerful enough to adequately illuminate the path in front of the bicycle and ensure that the bicycle is clearly visible to other road users.

e. Functionality: The lighting must continue to work even when the bicycle is stationary (e.g., at a traffic light), which is usually ensured by a dynamo or battery.

Using non-StVZO-compliant lighting can not only be dangerous but also result in fines. Therefore, it is important to check for StVZO approval when purchasing bicycle lamps. This approval is usually indicated on the packaging or the product itself.
