- Obtaining a driving license in Belgium is pretty much like everywhere else, first you have to pass the theory exam and then the practice exam. However, there is a slight difference in terms and procedures.
So, if you are 18 and above and want to obtain a driving license, the first thing you should do is apply for the theory exam in Brussels (Examencentrum nr. 1001
Kolonel Bourgstraat 1181140 Brussel – Evere). Because English is not official language in Belgium, there will be a translator reading the question (twice) for you. The translation costs 50€ per each exam. Add to that the exam fees of 15€. When you apply you will need to pay the 50€ immediately and they will set you up with the closest possible date. The other 15€ must be paid right before the exam. It should be noted that exams with English translator are always on Friday morning (9 am).
If you fail the theory exam twice (i.e. if you get less than 41/50), you will need to follow a theory course (12 hours). There is only one school in Belgium that gives driving courses (both theory and practice) in English which is VAB-Rijschool located in (Paardenmarktstraat 48, 3080 Tervuren).
After the end of the course, you will be given a certificate that proves you followed the course and it will enable you to apply for the exam two more times. If you failed you will have to follow the course again.
As for practice, you will need at least 20 hours (65€ per hour) to qualify for the provisional driving license which is valid for 18 months. With this license you can drive anywhere in Belgium, except during weekend nights, but you will have to do your driving exam during that period.
If you fail the driving exam twice, you will need to follow another six hours of behind-the-wheel training.
