Frequently asked questions about DiDb membership

You can submit your registration or membership renewal application in person at any of our DiDb registration offices or, if your employer has contracted with SECTRAN for e-membership management services, you can start the process through your carrier.

DiDb registration offices:

There are currently 4 types of registration services available:

  • physical card registration at a DiDb office – in this case, a Sectran registration administrator records the data from the driver in person, and a physical DiDb card is issued after the service is completed
  • e-card registration requested at the DiDb office – in this case, the data is also uploaded by a Sectran registration administrator directly into the system based on the data and information received from the driver, but at the end of the process, the online DiDb e-card can be activated by logging into the Sectran DiDb application
  • Physical card registration performed by the carrier - in this service, the carrier uploads the driver's data to the DiDb system. No physical card is issued at the end of the process, but it can be picked up free of charge at the hungarian or slovakian DiDb office after the service.
  • E-card registration performed by the carrier – again, the driver’s data is uploaded by the carrier, and the e-card can be activated by logging into the Sectran DiDb application after the service.

The steps of each registration process can be found here:

For successful registration and membership management you need

  • identity card and/or passport
  • driving licence

The validity period of the documents presented must not have expired, and one of them must be valid for at least 31 days.

  • – A Certificate of Good Conduct not older than 3 months (can be requested at the DiDb registration office)
  • – a portrait photo is uploaded during the service. This can either be taken by a Sectran registration administrator at the registration office, or by the carrier’s operator at the carrier’s site, or sent as a selfie to the carrier’s operator.
  • – smartphone in case of e-card services

If the data processing takes place in a DiDb registration office and the chosen service is a physical card service, the DiDb card will be issued on the spot.

In the case of DiDb office registration with e-card, the e-card can be activated by logging into the Sectran DiDb application (in this case no physical/plastic card is issued).

After the physical card registration by the carrier, the DiDb card can be picked up free of charge at any DiDb office. ( the carrier can not issue a card)

For e-card registration by a carrier, the e-card must be activated using the Sectran DiDb application in the same way as for DiDb office e-card registration.

When renewing a membership with a physical card, neither another DiDb number nor a DiDb card will be issued, only the data will be updated in the database.

In the same way, renewing membership with an e-card, the e-card must be activated using the Sectran DiDb app.

Completed registration applications submitted on weekdays 8:00-17:30 (on Fridays 8:00 to 16:00) are processed within 2 hours.

The driver will be notified of the decision by SMS to the phone number provided during the service.

The DiDb card is only suitable for loading if the application has been approved by our central office,however, we will send an SMS notification even if the application is rejected on the basis of the documents and data submitted. In this case, there is no possibility for loading the cargo within the DiDb system.

A Certificate of Good Conduct is not a prerequisite for using the registration or membership renewal service, it can be uploaded later. However, we can only assess a membership renewal service if a criminal record is available.

The condition for approval of DiDb membership is a criminal record, which drivers can prove with a non-registration official moral certificate. The document proving a criminal record can be requested from the authorities of the country of citizenship or from the embassy in another country.












The physical DiDb card must be protected from light, heat, mechanical damage and other external influences! SECTRAN Ltd. shall not be liable for any damage resulting from the loss or misuse of the card and shall charge a replacement fee.

DiDb membership must be renewed every 2 years. The deadline for membership renewal is calculated on the basis of the last 6 digits of the DiDb physical card, which indicate the date of registration (yyyy/mm), after which membership renewal must be arranged no later than 2 years later.

If you have a DiDb e-card, the exact membership expiration date can be seen in the Sectran DiDb application.

In the case of that the driver fails or refuses the compulsory renewal of the membership, his/her membership in the DiDb system will become “Invalid” and he/she will no longer be able to use the DiDb card for identification and loading purposes. Upon successful completion of the membership renewal requirements, the driver will receive an approved, valid DiDb membership. Upon renewal, the driver will not receive a new DiDb number or a new physical card, the actual can continue to be used for both identification and loading.

In the case of a renewal of a membership with a physical card, if the card is missing, a replacement card will be issued at a cost, so it is always worth using the cardfor services, even if the membership is no longer valid.

The DiDb card is checked at the customer’s site, typically before loading.

The physical card must be put on the DiDb card reader and the 4-digit PIN code -provided during the registration -must be entered. Then the driver’s data sheet becomes visible to the operator, on which personal data can be checked, as well as the status recorded in the DiDb system.

For identification with E-card a nine-digit DiDb PassCode generated in a mobile application will be required, after which the driver data sheet will be available.

DiDb status is the most important information about membership.

prohibited “in this case the DiDb card or the driver’s membership will be cancelled for one of the following reasons:

-proven involvement in an incident reported by a user

-stolen or lost card.

refused “the driver was unable to comply with the contractual conditions imposed (e.g. in the case of a Certificate of Good Conduct submission)

Taking into account data protection regulations, in the case of a banned and refused DiDb status, the driver’s data sheet stored in the DiDb system cannot be viewed, the system will only send a “DiDb without authentication” message to the users. No information or reason for the ban/refusal will be disclosed.
