Driving licence for a car
Driving instruction leading to a driving licence for a car (category B) is taken in three steps. It consists of basic training, a training period and further training.
After basic training has been completed, the first driving licence for a car is issued for two years (a short-term driving licence). A short-term driving licence is posted to the holder’s home address after he or she has passed the driving test.
Before receiving a permanent driving licence, the holder of a short-term licence must complete a training period and further instruction. The training period starts immediately after the driver has passed the driving test and lasts for at least three months. After completing the training period, the driver must take part in further instruction, which can at the earliest start three months after passing the driving test. A certificate of having completed the training period and further instruction must be submitted to the police.
If you passed your driving test before 19 January 2013, you do not need to complete a training period and take further instruction. For more information on the training period and further instruction, please contact driving schools.
Driving licences are mainly sent to the applicants by post.
