Traffic rules

The traffic regulations describe how a road user must behave on public roads, so that traffic flows safely and smoothly. It is expected that all road users know and apply the traffic regulations. Sometimes traffic regulations will appear a bit unclear. However, all rules in the regulations have been well thought through, so it is also important to know the underlying line of thought.


Vehicle

Any means of transport on land, as well as all mobile agricultural or commercial equipment.

  • Brakes
  • Tires
  • Weight
  • Cargo/dimensions
  • Dangerous load
  • Windshield, windows and wipers
  • Suspension
  • Exhaust system
  • Engine


Brakes

Only the brakes can stop your vehicle. It is very dangerous if the brakes do not work properly. If the brakes make a lot of noise, give off a weird odor, or if the brake pedal does not work properly, have it checked with your garage. A vehicle that is pulled to one side when braking is also checked.



Tires

Worn or bald tires can increase your stopping distance and make turning more difficult when the road is wet. Unbalanced tires and low-pressure cause faster tire wear, reduce fuel economy, and make the vehicle harder to steer and stop. If the vehicle bounces, the steering wheel shakes, or the vehicle pulls to one side, have a mechanic check it. Worn tires increase the effect of “hydroplaning” and increase the chance of having a flat tire.

The tire pressure must be measured when the tires are cold. Consult the vehicle manual for the correct tire pressure. Most tires have wear indicators that indicate when the tire needs to be replaced.



Weight

Vehicles heavier than indicated prohibited


Cargo/dimensions

Any good or material that is transported by a vehicle.

Vehicles wider than indicated prohibited


Vehicles higher than indicated prohibited


Vehicles longer than indicated prohibited


Dangerous load

In some places you may not drive with a dangerous load.

Vehicles with dangerous goods prohibited


Vehicles with explosive materials prohibited


Vehicles with polluted fluids prohibited


Windshield, windows and wipers

It is important that you are able to see clearly through the windows and windshield. Clear snow, ice, or frost from all windows before driving. Make sure the inside of the windshield and windows are clean as well. Damaged glass can break very easily in a minor collision or when something hits the windshield. Have a damaged windshield replaced. Windshield wipers keep the rain and snow off the windshield. Some vehicles also have wipers for rear windows. Make sure all wipers are in good operating condition. If the blades are not clearing water well, replace them.



Suspension

The wheel suspension is the system of tires, tire pressure, springs, shock absorbers and couplings that connects the vehicle to the tires. The wheel suspension helps to have a good control over the vehicle and ensures a comfortable ride over different types of road surfaces.



Exhaust system

The exhaust system reduces the noise coming from the engine and helps cool the exhaust fumes from the engine. It transports the gases to the rear of the vehicle. Gasses that are released from a leaking exhaust system can be deadly in a short time. Never run an engine in a closed garage or small space.



Engine

A badly running engine may fail while you are driving, this can cause serious problems for you and other road users. A poorly maintained engine is difficult to start, polluting, and uses more fuel.

The English is not good on this site and can be misleading. It is important to proof read so that any errors are removed to avoid ambiguity

So many mistakes in the theory and practice test. Most of the important theoretical information is missing. Tests are complete mess: some questions are untranslated, have spelling mistakes and even incorrect 'correct' answers. What a waste of money..

Hi, Paid 20 euros for 10 days and went through almost every question you have in your bank but there were not more than 4 questions that came in the test. You really need to update your questions.
