Traffic rules

The traffic rules describe how a road user must act on the public road, which includes obligations but also advice on how to drive sensibly and safely. All road users must know and apply the traffic rules.


Drivers license

To drive a vehicle, you must have a valid driving license. For this you have to take a theoretical and practical exam. On this website you can prepare for the theoretical exam.


Theory exam

You must take the theory exam in an exam center. The exam consists of 50 multiple choice questions that you have to answer with a computer. A question with 3 choices appears, 1 of which is correct. After reading the question, you have 15 seconds to answer. To pass the exam you have to get at least 41 out of 50. If you failed 2 times, you must take lectures in an official driving school.
