Taking driving lessons in Amsterdam

The ability to drive is a vital skill to have. Whether you need a car for business, want to drive for pleasure or are just tired of public transportation. Taking car driving lessons in Amsterdam with driving school SafeLes is the way to go!

At SafeLes we understand that many people have difficulty making ends meet, and driving lessons in Amsterdam are a big expense. That is why we use fixed low prices on your lessons. We offer a driving lesson with a manual car from €39.99 per hour! In addition, with the Comfort package you will get a free re-exam when you purchase a TTT (interim test). Would you prefer automatic driving lessons? Of course that is not a problem at all. Our English speaking instructors are ready to help you!

Automatic transmission

Students who take driving lessons with an automatic car need an average of 10 less lessons compared to driving lessons in a manual car. Automatic driving is the future! Keep in mind that you will receive a different driver’s license when you take the practical exam with automatic transmission. Just like driving lessons with shift gear, we give the lessons with an automatic transmission in the exam area of Amsterdam West. Would you like to give it a try?

How do I schedule new driving lessons?

Did you do a trial lesson? Are you satisfied and do you want to schedule lessons? Please contact our customer service and we will schedule the driving lessons together. This can be done by telephone or e-mail. We always advise to schedule lessons for the coming weeks. This way you can be sure that there is enough availabilities.

Is it possible to take lessons in the evenings and weekends?

We offer classes 7 days a week from 08:00 to 20:00. However, each instructor has his or her own work schedule. We try to schedule your classes during the trial lesson with the instructor whose schedule fits you the best. This way you can enjoy flexible lessons.

Can I take lessons for several hours and days in a row?

It is usually possible to have lessons for several hours and days in a row if a student wants this. This requires proper consultation with customer service so that we take the planning into account. It is wise to discuss this with your instructor first to see if intensive lessons suit your level and learning style.

Where can I be picked up?

We will pick you up in the exam area. That’s the western part of the city. Do you live in the western part of the city? Then we can pick you up at home or we pick you up at one of the stations in the area. Pick-up in other parts of the city is only possible after consultation with customer service if it fits with the planning. To prepare you as well as possible for the practical exam and to save valuable class time, we drive as much as possible in the exam area.

What can I expect of the practical exam?

The exam takes place at the CBR, Naritaweg 150 in Amsterdam. We make an appointment for this about the time and location where you will meet the instructor. During the ride, an examiner will sit next to the student to check the  driving skills. The instructor is allowed to ride with you, but we are no longer allowed to give you instructions during the exam. More info.

Why should I do an Interim Test?

With the help of an interim test you get used to driving with an examiner next to you. This way you will be less nervous during the exam. You will also receive feedback, which increases the chance of success during the exam. Finally, you can also get exemption from special actions during the exam by performing them properly during the interim test. And to reward your efforts, we give you a free re-exam for some promotions if you take a TTT. More info.

In what car will I take my lessons and practical exam?

Our driving lessons and exams are always given and taken in the latest model car. Safe, professional and above all nice to drive.

Recently we also drive in a brand new fully electric car. This way we contribute to a cleaner climate and prepare you for the new generation of cars that drive fully electric.

Do I always have the same instructor during my driving lessons?

At SafeLes driving school you always have your own, permanent instructor. We do this so that you get to know each other well and that a bond of trust grows. Your driving instructor guides you in a patient, careful and focused manner to the practical exam, paying attention to your personal learning points. Everything is explained clearly and expertly and there is also room for pleasant conversations. This makes your driving lesson effective and fun! It is also possible to take driving lessons in another language.

Do I have the option to take driving lessons with a female driving instructor?

Do you prefer a female instructor? Some women are uncomfortable with a male driving instructor. This can prevent them from learning to drive in a relaxed manner. No problem, at SafeLes Driving School we simply book your classes with a female instructor.
