Driving Training In Steps (RIS)
What is the RIS method?
CBR developed the RIS method in 2003 at the request of the Minister of Transportation.
The ministry felt it was necessary to have a method whereby the candidate could also prepare himself, outside of classes, for the practical exam.
The method originally came from the Defense Department’s driver training programs. He has been included in instructor training there since 1977.
The Driving Education in Steps (RIS method) has been introduced nationwide. RIS driving instructors have undergone additional training to teach this way.

Theory book driving education in steps
The candidates all receive their own RIS book. This book is used during driver training. Its cost is included in the crash course.
The book also includes an instruction card. On that card, result of previous RIS driving lesson is filled in, with explanation. As a result, you always have a good overview of what you still need to learn.
You will also be given homework. You then memorize procedures for certain actions in the car. So that you have already mastered it a bit when you have driving lessons again.
In addition to the RIS book, you can also practice online. The online training is supported with video and pictures.
With the 10-day crash course, you also take an intermediate test. This is a mock exam. The driving test is fully mimicked. Therefore, this is good preparation for the real exam.
Moreover, if the special operations go well, you won’t have to do them on the practical exam.
