Passing the theory test

In preparation for your theory test you can choose to buy the educational tools at Driving School van der Klip. This consists a theory book and a CD-ROM with 10 learning theory practice exams. With these, you can prepare yourself at home. Every Tuesday evening fro m 8 pm to 10 pm there are theory classes. If there are problems while using the course material, the n this will be discussed during class. Also, there is ample opportunity to ask questions. Of course these evening lessons are for free.

Re-training lessons

Sometimes it may be that you drive less frequently by personal circumstances, disease or by fear. When you drive again in traffic you might feel insecure. In that case it is good for yourself to follow a refresh course. This can be either in your own car as well as in the school's car. Some topics we will handle are driving different crossings, where it is possible to exit and where it is not, the new way of driving and safe parking.

Driving lessons in English

For expats or for people who just arrived to the Netherlands and are still learning Dutch, it is difficult to understand the instructions during the lessons. The good news is that you can take the driving test in English. For that reason, at driving school van der Klip you can have driving lessons in English as well! You can take the theory test in English and our teaching resources for the theory test are also available in English.

Cost-saving drive

For the new way of driving you need to make a few relatively small adjustments to your driving style. Some tips provide an instant increase in ride comfort, safety and fuel economy. The most important tips are:

  • Change gear around 2500 RPM (In gasoline engines, for diesel engines this is even lower) to the highest possible gear.
  • Give gas in a way that you can allow the traffic to flow in a normal way
  • Let the car roll out in the highest possible gear without pressing the clutch.
  • But how do you make this driving style your own? An extra program in the morning or afternoon provides this outcome.
