Driving licence with a driving instruction permit

Services for driving instruction permit holders
Safety training is compulsory for driving instruction permit learners. You can only begin instruction with a driving instruction permit after taking safety training. Driving schools offer more flexibility in the planning of instruction.

Driving instruction given with a driving instruction permit can be used to replace driving lessons arranged by a driving school. You can also combine the two forms of instruction to suit your needs. Learners applying for their first driving licence must pass the BFDL training (safety training) before beginning driving instruction. The instructor may participate in the safety training with the learner. Learners must take their training certificate with them to driving lessons.

Safety training €49

The safety training comprises four (4) hours of online theory instruction. You can begin your online theory instruction at any time you prefer between 2 pm and 8 pm from Monday to Thursday by logging in via a link to your learning environment. As your online theory lesson begins when you log in, you are not tied to lessons starting on the hour. The online theory service closes at 9 pm.

After passing the safety training, you will receive a certificate from your CAP Driving School and can start your driving lessons.

Risk recognition training €299

The risk recognition training comprises four (4) hours of online theory instruction. You can begin your online theory instruction at any time you prefer between 2 pm and 8 pm from Monday to Thursday by logging in via a link to your learning environment. As your online theory lesson begins when you log in, you are not tied to lessons starting on the hour. The online theory service closes at 9 pm.

In addition, the training includes four (4) hours of driving instruction. One lesson lasts 50 minutes. We have designed our lessons so that they cover a wide range of topics. Two (2) of the driving lessons are completed in a car and two (2) with a CAP driving simulator. The simulator driving lessons cover topics related to driving in difficult conditions and are not comparable to the previous night-time driving lessons or lessons on driving in slippery conditions carried out on a track. 

If you have completed nighttime driving lessons prior to 1 July 2018, you do not have to retake these lessons. However, we recommend that you take both simulator lessons included in your course content.
