Want to get your Dutch driver’s license?
Then you have to take the Dutch written & practical driver’s test. On average it takes ~20-40 driving lessons if you don’t know how to drive. To take the driver’s test (both written & practical) you must apply for this with the CBR (Central Bureau for Driving Examinations). You can only do this via an official driving school. Obviously, your instructor will not let you take the test unless you can drive sufficiently.
Please note: if you don’t live in the Netherlands, you can take lessons, but not the actual test. So: if you live in Belgium and want to get a Dutch driver’s license unfortunately that’s not possible.
- You take a trial lesson of 120 mins (€60) so your driving instructor can make a fair judgment about how many
lessons you need before you can take the exam.
- Make a plan with your instructor on the number of lessons and the time period you want take them. (If you don’t like what is offered, you can also quit after the trial lesson!)
- Start practising
- Take the written exam and a practice driving test
- After you pass the written exam you can take the test for real
- Go pick up your driver’s license at the Municipality!
