Course starts at the age of 15 1/2 and at 17 you go straight to the practical exam!
Since the beginning of 2013, it is possible to start the L17 course at 15 years and 6 months.
The practical examination itself can only be taken after the 17th birthday.
The L17 course variant places the greatest demands on the driver’s claims.
After a basic theoretical and practical driving course in the driving school, the first 1000 km follow with the companion (usually father or mother). Afterwards, the result of this interaction is analysed in the driving school. Strengthened with the tips and tricks of the riding technique professionals, the next 1000 km are on the line. Another check at the driving school and then the last 1000 km with the companion. With the finishing touches from the traffic experts, your practical course is complete!
In the meantime, the remaining theory courses should also be done. After that, you can take the theory test. Once you’ve celebrated your 17th birthday, there’s nothing standing in the way of the practical exam.
Good to know: The L17 was commented on very critically from all sides at the beginning. People feared an increase in traffic risk. None of this has come true – on the contrary: L17 offers more opportunities than any other form of training and thus contributes significantly to the increase in road safety.
