The renewed practical

The renewed practical was introduced on January 1, 2008 and is intended to bring down the accident rate among novice drivers down. New license holders have a much greater risk of an accident than experienced drivers. The new driving test was commissioned by the Ministry of Transport developed by the CBR to the general road safety and safe driving behavior of novice drivers to improve in particular. In recent years, specific measures have already been taken for the novice driver, such as the introduction of a beginner's license and stricter alcohol limits. From 2010 accompanied driving is expected to be possible.

More emphasis on independent driving and hazard

Since 2008, aspiring motorists are explicitly trained and tested in independent driving hazards and environmentally conscious driving. Also, prospective license holders think more about their own improvement in traffic. They are more aware of the risks. These elements have led to new tests. These will be explained below. In this approach focuses on the responsibility of the oncoming driver. The updated exam has been developed in close collaboration with researchers, the driving school industry and traffic organizations. The cost of the theory and practice are not increased.

New feature: Self driving route

A candidate runs some of the exam routes without instructions from the examiner. The 'independent driving route "can be performed in three ways: by March 1, 2009: a landmark ride that is not fixed in advance, but that the candidate knows, or can see. multiple route commands simultaneously (cluster assignment), combined with the blue ANWB signs] and by using a navigation system: The examiner determines in which of the above three ways the candidate's 'independent driving' to be performed. If there is no navigation system is present in the exam vehicle, the choice will be limited to other two options. The independent driving will take at least ten to fifteen minutes in the exam. The total examination time remains the same. To achieve the correct end point is not an end in itself. The point is that you drive safely and make responsible choices.

Variable landmarks

A landmark is not certain. It is a place that is known by the candidate well, such as a school, a sports club, or shopping. If you are unfamiliar in the examination area, the examiner may ask you to go to a visible point ride in that place, such as a church or a building. The exam can start driving to a landmark, but can also be closed with. You will be asked to ride from the landmark back to the exam site.

cluster Assignment

The cluster command relates to a portion of the route. This command is always very long and will be repeated one or more times to check whether you have understood. It mimics the situation in which the driver asking for directions to a passerby and then gets explained how to get to the requested location. The set of route instructions will consist of at least from three to five commands. From March 1, 2009 onwards the cluster assignment can be completed with the mission to follow the blue road signs to a particular destination.


Driving with a navigation device is only required if it is known that the driving school has one.Fortunately if you use a navigation system them it will already be a practice from you for the future.. Driving with a navigation system can be applied for the examination, in principle, at any time. It also appears to be a solution for foreign candidates, mostly because navigation can be set in different languages. .

Special maneuvers

The new driving test has three special maneuvers: a reverse order, a parking command and a stop command. During the driving test you will perform in most cases two special maneuvers.

  • Reversing Assignment : In the reverse assignment you will have to drive the car backwards inorder to turn or take a different route or for other reason. This maneuver will test if you can adequately test the traffic situation on the road.
  • Parking Mission : The examiner can also opt for a parking command in a street or a parking lot. Here you get the task to park the car as close as possibel to a specified location. For example, this may be the entrance of a shopping mall. Again, you decide how to perform the parking mission.
  • Stop command :  Further, a stop command possible. You'll have to stop behind another vehicle as short as possible to participate in the traffic then driving forward again. This can either be at the left or right side of the roadway. It is important that you have a correct estimate of the length of the nose of the car.

Of these three, the examiner chooses two. In addition, the examiner may carry out spot checks on the ramp test. In carrying out special maneuvers not only the technical aspect is important. It is especially considering the choices that precede it, such as the place, the time and the way you run the command.

New feature: Hazard situation by questioning

In this new section you'll be asked after the execution of a traffic situation why you have done it that way. What or how you have solved the situation and what considerations did you make this? There is no correct or wrong answer to this. It is more the way you keep it simple and safe both for you and also to the traffic on the road.

New feature: Self Reflection

For the exam you have to fill in a questionnaire, for example, at home or during lessons. That list you give at the beginning of the examination to the examiner. The examiner looks at the answers after the test results and discuss with you the answers. It is important here that you have a realistic view of your own abilities and limitations as a driver. Self-reflection is intended to influence the behavior of prospective license holders in a positive way. It is not a skill and therefore not included in the assessment.

New feature: Environmentally friendly driving

For the environment and for your own wallet it is important that you drive environmentally friendly cars, so driving on the principles of the New World. Environmentally conscious behavior is evaluated in the new driving test as a separate item. Its main focus is to anticipatory driving behavior, such as driving at a constant speed and the maximum use of the rolling capacity of the car. This not only contributes to reduction in the fuel consumption, it also has a positive influence on safe driving. On this subject is also given special attention in the new theory test.

New element Self reflection rated

It is the first time that the practical contains an element not being a consideration in the final assessment. That's because although it is a very important element for the safety and the candidate's awareness it is very difficult to measure objectively in an exam.
