Imagine yourself riding along the Dutch roads on your own moped! With the moped driving lessons of DriveRight this could be reality soon. To make sure that you know all the steps you have to take to obtain this licence, we have made this five step program for you. On this page, you can also read about the conditions for taking the driving test.
For the theory we suggest that you study the complete on-line riding theory training and testing tool TrafficTrainer for the moped, which has been designed specifically for the moped riding theory test. You could supplement this with the Verjo Traffic Manual Text Book in English (General Rules and Regulations).
Please note that there are no learning books for the moped riding theory tests in English, nor are there any English CD’s/DVD’s for this test; all this learning and practising should be done on-line through TrafficTrainer.
Steps to take for the moped licence
The moped licence tests
To obtain a moped driving licence (category AM) in The Netherlands you must take a CBR Moped Theory Test and an on-road CBR Riding Test. You can reserve a slot for the CBR Theory Test from 15 years of age onwards, but you can only take this test when you are 15,5. You must have passed this test before you can take the moped riding course or the CBR Moped Riding Test; you can apply for the CBR Moped Riding Test when you are 15, but only take this test when 16!
These tests are the same for the light-moped (blue registration plate) as well as the moped (yellow registration plate) with either an automatic or manual transmission and powered by a petrol or an electric engine.
Theory online and books
For the theory we suggest that you study specifically the moped theory program in English through TrafficTrainer; this program covers the complete theory and the practical questions for the moped theory test. You could supplement this with option 2, the English Traffic Manual + 535 Practice Test Questions, for the category B test.
