German term or phrase: VHK-Daten
Hi there,

Am translating an Auszug aus der Führerscheindatei from the Landratsamt München, which contains records as to when physical licenses were issued and picked up and for what classes.

There are two instances of the acronym I am looking for:

"VHK-Daten", which heads the section of the file containing basic information such as the current license number, the date it was handed to its owner, and the classes that person is currently allowed to drive.

"Klassen VHK" precedes the list of classes that person is currently licensed for (B, BE, C1, C1E, etc.)

Does anybody have any idea what this might stand for?

Thanks in advance!

I don't know how they got "VHK" out of "Fahrzeughalterkennzeichnung", but that's how it's defined in the EU document.
