A car or a motorcycle is indispensable for many workers to reach their place of work. Therefore, an appropriate motor vehicle is not taken into account as an asset for any eligible individual. In order to assess the appropriateness of the job, the sponsors of the basic job for job-seekers shall take into account, among other things, the size of the community of need, the number of motor vehicles in the community and the date of purchase.

Cars selling at less than € 7,500 are regarded as appropriate from the outset.
