True professionals! I'm really happy that I have chosen this driving school. I was driving with Marco, but I also had a chance to practice with Wilco and Monique. All of them are very supportive and committed to their work. School is providing a nice, new car and flexible schedule, the instructor picks you up from your home. I had lessons in English, there was no problem with that. I've passed my exam from 2nd try, which I think is a great result. I have received useful tips about driving which I will remember my whole life. Thank you!Lees meer

I passed on the first try! Need I say more? Monique was direct when she told me that she was strict and would instruct me in a way that would have me pass the test and that she did. She was also very flexible with our practice time, she was patient and we laughed a lot. I would highly recommend this driving school and especially Monique. As an adult taking driving lessons in a foreign country this was the driving school and experience I needed. Thank you Verkeersschool Cordewener/Driving School Maastricht!Lees meer

Ideal driving school for international students with friendly & professional instructors. It has been easy to schedule driving lessons to fit into a busy schedule, and instructions have been very individual to focus on improving personal weaknesses. The instructors Marco, Wilco and Monique are very dedicated with good advice at hand.It's not only about passing your exam, but also driving safely. Thanks to Driving School Maastricht, I can now say that I'm able to do both confidently!Lees meer

I would strongly recommend Driving school Maastricht for anyone who wants not only to pass their driving test, but also know how to drive safely. Driving School Maastricht is a trustworthy school. Marco, Monique and Wilco were really dedicated, punctual and very professional. Each lesson was fun and always in good humor. They quickly identified my weaknesses and worked on that till I overcame it. They were also very flexible to fit in my working schedules. They taught me with all their heart and not only for the sake of doing business! After a car accident, I was really afraid and nervous to sit behind a steering wheel. Marco was really very patient and taught me how to take confidence in myself and drive safely. He always corrected my mistakes with a smile or with a good laugh. He also offered me excellent advises on how to drive safely so that not only I passed my exams but also became a better driver.As a foreigner who do not speak Dutch, all my classes were done in English and they even helped in arranging my written exam which was really helpful! I did not had to worry at all about all the administrative stuffs. I would like to thank Driving School Maastricht and my instructors Marco, Monique and Wilco who made it possible for me to pass my exam and drive without fear!Lees meer

    What are the costs of a driving lesson?

    If you take 10 hours of training the price is of course less (€ 435,-).

    How long is one driving lesson?

    Our driving lessons are 50 or 60 minutes each. This is the most efficient, as it means you will need to adjust the seat, seatbelt and mirrors only once rather than twice. The same goes for the evaluation that takes place after the lesson ends.

    Where will I be picked up?

    If you live in the municipality of Sittard or in the surrounding area, you will be picked up at home. If you live outside of this region, the lessons could start elsewhere. We need to talk about this in individual cases.

    Will I have the same coach each time?

    As much as possible we try to connect you to the same coach. Sometimes it is inevitable to switch to another coach in case of vacation, illness etc.

    How does the instructor monitor my progress?

    instructor will monitor your progress using a paper, tablet or smartphone.

    How many lessons will I need to take?

    If you take lessons regularly you will require an average of about 25 lessons at our school (= 37,5 hours) to be able to pass the driving exam. But be aware, this is very individual. It also depends on your talent and ambition.

    The national average is 40 to 45 hours.

    Is it possible to cancel a driving lesson?

    Cancellations can be made up until 24 hours prior to your scheduled lesson (Saturdays, Sundays and holidays do not count as workdays!). You can do so by phone or e-mail during office hours only.

    How do I make my payment?

    You can pay by bank. It is also possible to pay for your package in installments.

    Can I get a refund if I end up with lessons that I paid for but do not need?

    If you purchased a lesson package and have lessons to spare at the end of your training, you will be not reimbursed for them. If you require additional lessons you can purchase these by one or by ten.

    Can I take a trial lesson?

    You can take a trial lesson (assessment) at our school. This lesson is for free if you are willing to continue your driving training at our driving school.

    Can I score free lessons?

    Yes you can: for each new student you bring in, you will receive a free lesson.

    Can I take an trial exam/test?
