The crash course in automatic driving license
Get an automatic driving license fast? Choose from 7, 8 or 10 driving lesson days.
Included in the price are:
- practical exam right after the last day of classes
- 1 day of driving lessons on our driving simulator; only for the 8 or 10 day course
- intermediate test; only for the 10-day course
We work with the successful method Driving Training In Steps.
You will be taught by an experienced instructor. This is private lessons or riding lessons in pairs.
In the latter case, ride along with your fellow student. You look along, you think along.
This "contemplative learning" is very effective. After all, you don't have to pay attention to performing all the actions. This allows you to focus on all points of interest when driving.
Pass your driving test in one go
We aim for you to pass immediately on your first driving test.
Succeeding at once has many advantages:
- it's cheaper on balance because it saves you the cost of additional exams
- you'll have your license sooner. The CBR has waiting periods for practical exams. You then have those only once instead of several times.
In general, it is better to take too many driving lessons than too few. You thereby increase your success rate on the driving test.
Your automatic driving license in 7, 8 or 10 days
For most people, a 7- or 8-day crash course in automatic driving is sufficient. Learning for an automatic license is faster than for the regular license, where 10 days is most optimal. After all, you don't have to learn to shift gears.
We do recommend taking a trial lesson in automatic first. Then the driving instructor can estimate how much lesson time will be sufficient for you.
The trial lesson is immediately your first driving lesson.
If you are still in doubt about a regular B license or an automatic license (B with code 78), take a test lesson in a switch car. Then the driving instructor can give you a recommendation.
Intermediate test (trial exam) in the crash course in automatics
We recommend taking an intermediate test if you have never taken an exam before.
An intermediate test is a trial exam at the CBR, where everything is the same as a real practical exam.
Benefits of an intermediate test:
- 15% greater success rate on the real exam.
The pass rate goes from 43% without, to 57% with intermediate test. So writes the CBR, which administers the exams.
- if maneuvers such as ramp test, reverse turn and file parking ("special operations") go well, you don't have to do them on your real exam.
- you learn a lot: you hear from the examiner what is already going well, and what you can still improve on
- you are less nervous on the exam because you already know how everything goes
For more information on the interim test, see CBR.
The 10-day automatic driving license crash course includes an intermediate test as standard.
Often with the 7 or 8 day automatic course, there is not enough time to take another intermediate test.
If you would still like to take an intermediate test, please call for consultation. If scheduling permits, he can just be booked in.
If you're not ready to drive off anyway
If you are almost due for your driving test, but still don't feel quite ready, it is possible to turn the exam into an intermediate test.
This can be done up to a day in advance. It is also possible if you have taken the test before.
After that, you can take some additional driving lessons. This will increase your chances of getting your driver's license in one sitting.
You will drive an automatic-learning car from Alblas. If you want to take lessons and exams in a switch car, book the regular car-steam course
With an automatic driver's license(B license code 78), you may not drive a switch car(B license). The other way around is.
But most modern cars today are also offered as automatic.
Starting immediately with the crash course in automatic driving license
We do not have a waiting list. CBR does have a hefty waiting list for driving tests.
But at Alblas, we can often arrange an exam for you within 7 weeks.
That means you can basically start taking the crash course for the automatic driving license within 7 weeks.
We schedule the crash course shortly before exam date so that you take the exam immediately after the course.
If you prefer to start your driving lessons right away, we can also spread the course out over several weeks.
Regardless, we will take into account your availability and scheduling needs.
Your automatic driving license at 17
You can start driving lessons from age 16 and a half. From the age of 17, you may take practical exams. Until you turn 18, you must drive with regular companions (2todrive).
From the age of 18, you may drive independently, even if you only just got your license then.
Because the crash course in automatic driving license is so fast, that means you must be almost 17. Or older.
If you haven't passed your theory yet, start there right away. This is allowed from the age of 16. Do not book the crash course until you have passed or think you will pass your theory, and have an exam date.
In fact, you must have it when you take the driving test. Also, your driving lessons become more effective when there is no need to pay attention to traffic rules.
You can take a car theory course with us, take private theory lessons or arrange a theory exam only.

- A DigiD authorization to arrange your exam
