The driving test is the ultimate goal for most students . This is slightly short -sighted thinking . The driving test is a short test , a snapshot that many factors may play a role. Of course, the driving test is an important hill that you must overcome . However, the ultimate goal is located after the exam , to be part of the modern traffic in a vehicle independently as a safe and skillful driver.

You’ve been practicing . The ride is as it were almost automatically . You and your instructor are convinced that you can , that you’re on the ( forward) looking to concentrate while driving (you completely if you are cycling , as it were out walking / . Here you can usually complete concentrate on watching ) . Also, your theory you have achieved. The only thing remaining is the driving test . We explain what a driving test implies :

Authorizing the driving school.

With your DigiD you are able to authorize our driving school , so we can reserve your driving exam ( we book  always in consultation with YOU !!!) .

Here you write down our CBR Driving School Number : 7059U8

with the link below you authorize us , so we can reserve an exam for you :

If you do not have a DigiD you can also fill out a form and send it to the CBR ( the authorization lasts 10 to 15 days) .

What do you take all toward your TTT or driving test :

  1. The call card and your own statement ( TWO pages Print this out and take it with you . The call card and your own statement will only be signed in the presence of the examiner !) .
  2. A self-reflection form. This is a form on which you are going to criticise your own driving skills. Estimate On the basis of the self-reflection form the examiner will look at the end of your test if your driving matches with what the examiner has seen. A self-reflection form can be downloaded here :  zelfreflectie kandidaat.pdf  Print it out and fill it out .
  3. Your identity.

P.s. (The theory certificate, not older than 1.5 years, you don’t have to carry. This is, after all, known to the CBR).

Then the examination :

An hour before the exam, your instructor is picking you up, so you can drive first. This allows you to adjust everything in the car properly and you can get used to the car. Then you and your instructor are 15 minutes before the exam present at the CBR, where you can relax yourself here.

The examinees are urged to report to their table number (this number is on your call card). Here you and me will meet with your examiner. Examiners are generally friendly people and will try to set you at ease and explain everything clearly. You do not need to be afraid of them.

Your examiner will first of all check your call card and your identification card and will ask you to sign the call card. If you have dispensation for the specific maneuvers from the TTT, the examiner will also read this advice form. The zelfreflectie form is unseen pushed aside. This will only be used at the end of your exam by the evaluation.

Then finaly the examiner will give you a brief explanation about the ride, and invite you to go driving.


The ride

Along with your examiner and , if you wish , even your driving instructor , you walk to the car . Even before you arrive at the car , the examiner will ask you to read a car license plate from about 25 meters away. If that is done, you walk with your examiner to the car , where he will ask a number of questions about the car you. This can go on the outside of the car, under the hood of the car, or on the inside of the car . Your instructor will give you this information during your driving lessons .

The examiner may wish to control the lighting of the car. Then he asks you to sit in the car and to turn on the necessary lighting. These are typically dim-, city-and a driving beam, direction indicator lamps, the rear lights, reversing lights, which you can control by the car to set into reverse, the brake lights, which you can control by pressing your brakes, and the rear fog light.

Then it’s time to sit down in the car, fasten your seatbelt, start the engine and drive away in the car.

During the ride , the examiner will give you assignments and judge you on how you perform . The examiner will assess the following points :

Driving away
Driving on straight and winding sections
Behavior near and at intersections
Insert – leaving
Overtaking – lateral displacement
Behavior near and by special sections
special maneuvers

The exam route is different every time and will be determined by the examiner during the ride. In any event, the above points are treated and you will have to drive both inside and outside the built-up area, where the highway almost always as outside urban areas is considered. To insert or leaving does not need to happen only on the highway.

The examiner will also let you drive a piece of independent during your exam. This can take place by means of three types of commands:

  1. Cluster command: the examiner will give you a number of commands, one after another, as if the road to someone you have requested. So for example: at the end of the road to the left, then the second right, then follow the signs direction Utrecht. The cluster command always has at least three and up to five commands. The cluster command is not a memory test and it is therefore no problem if you forgot some things. You can just ask to your examiner how you again have to drive and he will then repeat it. Also if you don’t follow the commands exactly this is not nice but no big problem. The most important thing is that you show the examiner that you can drive and search your way in a safely manner.
  2. Co-ordination point: the examiner will ask you if you are known to the examination site and will ask if you want to drive to a certain point. Again it is not important that you arrive to that point exactly. The important thing is that you will drive safely .
  3. Navigation system: the examiner may ask you to enter an address, and to follow the navigation system. We will go to practice this with you.

situation Discussion

During the ride the examiner ask you to park the car somewhere and will ask you a question about a particular situation. This is called a situation discussion . This is about a traffic situation where you just have been. In any case, not be nervous when the examiner asks you a question, and just try to answer. Even if the examiner asking a question about something of which you know you have done not entirely error-free does not mean that you are failed. Please also give an answer in this case. And if you know you have done something wrong, tell what you have done wrong and just tell how you could have done better. Then the examiner knows you think about it and is ok with the situation.

special maneuvers

If you do not have done a TTT or have not achieved dispensation for ” special maneuvers “, the examiner will give you two of the three possible special maneuvers :


  1. Stop command : here you have to stop your car safely on the side of the road, behind a parked car or three or pavement, in a way that you JUST can continue to drive away FORWARD properly and SAFELY.
  2. Parking command: the examiner gives you a command to Park somewhere. You can choose where, as long as you park the car (as much as possible) near the point where the command is given. This can take place by means of file-parking, or back or forward parking. It’s not the most important thing that you do it flawlessly, as long as you do it SAFELY.
  3. U turn Command : the examiner indicates that you must make an u turn in a certain street. Also here you can choose what you want to do, but as long as you turn around in that particular street. This can be by means of a half turna curve backwards, or the return by means of stabbing three times. Again, it is not the most important that you do it flawlessly, but that you do it SAFELY.

Duration examination :

The ride include “the special maneuvers” will usually last about 35 minutes.

The Evaluation :

When you finally completed the ride, you park the car at the CBR and you walk with your examiner inward to your table . Here the examiner will tell you whether the drive is or is not sufficient. On the basis of your self-reflection form he will discuss the ride with you, and  if necessary , tell you what items you still need to improve. But we are just naturally assume that you hear that you are successful and that you can pick up your driving license at the city hall.

If you are successful, the examiner immediately sending wirelessly the result to the city hall , where you the next day, or sometimes even the same day, you can pick up your driving license .
