Did you lose your driving licence and was this driving licence issued in an EU or EFTA country, Aruba or the former Netherlands Antilles? Follow these steps:
- Bring a Dutch police report to the town hall of the municipality where you are registered or apply at your municipality for a statement of loss.
- Bring a colour passport photo, a valid ID and a statement of authenticity. You can apply for a statement of authenticity to the foreign authority who has issued the driving licence.
- The municipality will forward your application to us. We will assess your application. Application approved? Then you will receive a letter telling you that you can pick up the driving licence at your municipality.
Have you lost your driving licence that was issued in a country outside the EU or EFTA, and not being Aruba or former Netherlands Antilles? Then you have to apply for a new driving licence in the country where the last driving licence was issued. This does not work? Then you will have to retake a driving test in the Netherlands.
Did you have a Dutch driving licence in the past that was valid after June 30, 1985? Then it is possible to exchange your driving licence. Please contact our customer service for more information.
