Driver license requirements

  • The Netherlands accept all driver licenses issued in the European Union (EU).
  • If your driver license is issued by a non-EU country, for it to be considered valid you’ll need a Netherlands visa. Another requirement is to have been in the EU for no more than six months at the time of the rental. If you’ve been in the EU longer, you’ll need a driver license issued by an EU country.
  • If your driver license is printed in a non-Latin alphabet (Cyrillic, Arabic, etc.), you’ll need an International Driving Permit (IDP) or an official translation of your license into English or Dutch.
  • You must carry your driver license, not its copy, with you at all times.
  • You need to have had your driver license for at least one or two years, depending on the car provider’s requirements.
  • There may be additional requirements depending on the car provider and car category, so make sure to check the terms and conditions before booking.

Crossing Borders

Netherlands is a member of the European Union (EU) and the Schengen Area. If you’re not a citizen of a Schengen Area member state, you might or might not need a visa to visit the Schengen Area. It is best to consult the information provided by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of your country to find out if you need a visa to visit the Schengen Area.

Netherlands is bordered by two countries, Belgium and Germany. Both these countries are also members of the Schengen Area. The same requirements that will apply to visiting the Netherlands will also apply to visiting either one of them, e.g., if you need a Schengen Visa to visit the Netherlands, you’ll be able to cross the border to each of the Netherlands’ neighbors with it.

Some car rental providers allow you to cross national borders and even drop off your car in a different country, while others don’t. If you’d like to cross a national border during your rental period, make sure to check the terms and conditions before booking a car.

Parking methods on street of Holland in general and big cities in particular are very unfriendly and totally unclear for the tourist. public parking lot are fare in general yet could be expensive, and parking garages are extremely expensive. That should be taken into consideration when renting a car.

Take your time driving around the towns, some of the road markings can be a little confusing if it is your first time driving in Europe & if you are used to a right-hand drive like myself & not left! All of the Netherlands is beautiful, definitely recommend visiting Artis Zoo in Amsterdam, Burgers Zoo in Arnhem & GaiaZoo in Kerkrade, the zoos are fab & the towns are really nice & clean & the people are very friendly.
