If you are a driving instructor and you want to provide driving lessons in the Netherlands, you must have a valid WRM competence card (Law on driving instructions for motor vehicles, Wet rijonderricht motorrijtuigenWRM, in Dutch). This card is valid for 5 years. You must take refresher courses to renew your certification.
How to apply
To get the certificate you need to take an exam with IKBI (in Dutch), the exam and certification institute for the mobility sector. Part of the exam is a traineeship.
If you fulfil all requirements you will receive your competence card with the certificate for which you passed the exam. You are then allowed to give both theoretical and practical driving lessons for the category stated on your certificate.
You must take refresher courses to renew your certification. Before your competence card expires you must:
- take a practical driving lesson (in Dutch) with an IKBI examiner
- complete a theoretical training (in Dutch)
Once you have completed your refresher training, you will automatically receive a new competence card before the old one has expired.
