Below you will find a list of frequently asked questions. If your question isn't answered here, you can reach us by telephone (053-4306500), or you can ask your question via this link
What are the costs of a driving lesson?
For one 90-minute lesson, prices start at € 67,-.
How long is one driving lesson?
Our driving lessons are 90 minutes each. This is the most efficient, as it means you will need to adjust the seat, seatbelt and mirrors only once rather than twice. The same goes for the evaluation that takes place after the lesson ends. In short, it will easily save you 5 to 10 minutes!
Where will I be picked up?
If you live in the municipality of Enschede or the built-up area of Hengelo, Borne or Oldenzaal, you will be picked up at home. If you live outside of this region, the lessons will start at the driving school or another designated location in Enschede.
How do I make my payment?
You can pay by bank. Payments for lesson packages must be made before starting your first lesson. It is also possible to pay for your package in instalments.
Is it possible to cancel a driving lesson?
Cancellations can be made up until 48 hours prior to your scheduled lesson (two workdays; Saturdays, Sundays and holidays do not count as workdays!). You can do so by phone or e-mail during office hours only. If the scheduled lesson is more than 7 days away, you can cancel using the reservation system.
Can I get a refund if I end up with lessons that I paid for but do not need?
If you purchased a lesson package and have lessons to spare at the end of your training, you will be reimbursed for them. If you require additional lessons you can purchase these by one or by ten.
How does the instructor monitor my progress?
instructor will monitor your progress using a tablet or smartphone. You can review this ‘instruction card’ at home, using the driving lessons scheduling system. Look under ‘vorderingen’ in the course overview.
How do I apply for the theory exam?
You can schedule your theory exam yourself, at www.cbr.nl. If you would like us to arrange it for you on payment of an administration fee instead, e-mail us at: email@example.com
How many lessons will I need to take?
If you take lessons regularly (2 lessons per week) you will require an average of 25 lessons at our school (= 37,5 hours) to be able to pass the driving exam.
The national average is 40 to 45 hours.
Can I take a trial lesson?
You can take a trial lesson at our school. This lesson will have to be paid in advance by bank, as do other separate lessons. The trial lesson is completely non-committal.
Can I take an interim test (Tussentijdse Toets)?
Every lesson package we offer contains an interim test. If you did not opt for one of the lesson packages, you can also purchase a separate interim test.
Will I have the same instructor each time?
You can schedule your own lessons with the instructor of your choice via the ‘Rijlesplanner’ (driving lessons scheduling system).
Can I take theory lessons at De Studentenrijschool®?
Is smoking permitted in the lesson vehicles?
No: we have smoke-free cars. This also means no smoking takes place in the car outside of teaching hours!
Can I score free lessons?
Yes you can: for each new student you bring in, you will receive a free lesson or a dinercheque! (Only applicable if combined with at least lesson package A.)
