Welcome to The Netherlands!

With this unique crash course program you get your Dutch drivers licence within just a week for manual or automatic car license. It is conducted by the best UK instructors. 

We have, as LesDirect, had many years of experience teaching specific driving training to expats and immigrants. Here you can read everything you want to know about the required Dutch drivers licence for non-EU expats and immigrants. It is very interesting to see big differences between driving style and driving behaviour around the world.

Driving lessons style and the CBR practical exam are often very different compared to other countries outside the EU. Therefore expats and immigrants often need to spend more attention to their driving style and driving behaviour to pass the Dutch CBR practical exam succesful.

  • Why Arrive & Drive™?

    Our experience shows that, on average, an expat still needs 15 to 20 lessons (hours) to pass.

    An unexperienced student in the Netherlands needs an average of 45 driving lessons (hours) and an Interim test. The Netherlands is one of the most difficult countries worldwide to pass for your driving test.

    Compared to Mexico for instance, you only need to pass a written test and not really have to show you are able to drive. Or India, where you only have to show you can drive forwards, turn left and are able to stop the car.

    Also in the US and Canada it is fairly easy to pass your practical exam. They belong to the 10 easiest countries to pass for your driving test.

    You can imagine that the costs concerning getting a drivers licence differ tremendously. With Arrive & Drive you get the fastest and most efficient way to your Dutch drivers license. For many save kilometers on Dutch roads.
