Driving licence with an instruction permit

You can also obtain a passenger car driving licence with an instruction permit, which means that one of the student’s parents, for example, will act as the driving instructor. Obtaining a driving licence with an instruction permit requires the student to complete the studies required by law in a driving school in addition to independent training.

Statutory driving school courses for instruction permit students

Instruction permit instruction courses at a driving school include the training for candidates for first driving licences (EAS) and risk recognition training (RTK).

*The EAS training is not mandatory if the student already has a driving licence, such as a moped or light motorcycle licence.
