Various motorcycle licenses

Practical Information

To obtain a motorcycle license, you must take two practical exams: one for vehicle control (AVB) and one for traffic participation (AVD). There are three categories of motorcycle licenses: A1 for light engines, A2 for medium duty engines, riding a A for heavy engines.

The legislation surrounding motorcycle licenses was adapted to EU rules in November 2017. Anyone who obtained their driving license before then is still subject to the old regulations.

If you are 18 years old, you are eligible for the A1 motorcycle license, suitable for light motorcycles. From the age of 17 you can start taking driving lessons and take the theory exam.

From the age of 20 you can obtain the A2 motorcycle license for medium-duty motorcycles. You can start driving lessons for this type of motorcycle at this age, provided you have passed your motorcycle theory exam or already have a driving license.

From the age of 21 you can apply for the A license for heavy motorcycles. Driving lessons are permitted from this age, provided you have passed the motorcycle theory exam or have a driving license. If you obtain the A license before the age of 24, you will receive code 80 on your driver's license, which entails restrictions until the code expires, two years after obtaining the driver's license or when you turn 24. Then you can ride any motorcycle without an additional exam.

Good instructors! (I've had lessons with Semanur, Yasin, Muhammet and Emre) They give good tips and good feedback after the lessons. Before I started riding I knew very little, but after all the lessons I feel comfortable while riding.

After having had a day's course before the day of my exam, everything was explained very informative and neatly. With Emre's efforts as a theory teacher, I can proudly say that I passed my motorcycle theory!

AVB exam Amsterdam

The AVB exam

The AVB exam takes place on special CBR motorcycle training areas. Not every location has a practice area, so sometimes travel is necessary. Upon arrival there is an opportunity to practice. 

You pass if you perform 5 of the 7 exercises correctly; you may fail 2 exercises. This process tests your vehicle control and prepares you for safe traffic participation.


AVD exam Amsterdam

The AVD Exam

After successfully completing the AVB exam, you focus on... AVD exam, where you go on public roads under the guidance of an instructor, who maintains communication via a microphone. The preparation includes three themes: making your motorcycle ready to drive, vehicle control with a focus on viewing technique, braking, following distance, overtaking and turning, and safety focused on anticipation and decisive driving behavior.

There is a lead time for the AVD exam to get used to it and reduce nerves, during which the examiner pays attention to viewing behavior, position on the road, and interaction with other road users.
