Start   Shooting Permits   Guidelines   Filming on Public Streets and Roads   Berlin   License from the road traffic authority

License from the road traffic authorities

In addition to the general shooting permit, filmmakers require a license if road closures, “no stopping” signs or other (unusual) regulations that may interfere with traffic are necessary for the shoot. Individual and collective licenses that allow the holder to put up “no stopping” signs are awarded by the Berlin VLB.

The VLB cooperates with the district police department in all matters concerning permits and regulations, as well as informs
the appropriate police precinct as well as the local ministry of public order of whatever supervision will be needed for the shoot.
It is recommended that you get in touch with the local police precinct prior to the initial shoot. Below you find a list of the appropriate government offices.

In certain cases, the VLB will inform public building officials e.g. embassies or federal buildings affected by shoots taking place around the civic center. Whatever agreements are reached in no way free filmmakers of their own obligation to inform residents and businesses in advance of any potential traffic impediments that may arise from filming. In Brandenburg, the traffic authorities act as a central office similar to the VLB when it comes to reaching agreements with police and traffic authorities.

The BBFC has created standardized application forms in conjunction with the VLB and other government offices.

Since the official language is German, you will need an experienced German speaking production manager for more complex procedures who can fill out the forms and can clarify any questions concerning the shooting permits. You will find a list of production and location managers in our database.
