Temporary extension to driving licence validity

The cabinet’s coronavirus measures mean that it is not always possible to extend driving licences in time. To prevent that driving licence holders experience problems because of this, Minister Cora van Nieuwenhuizen from the Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management has decided that driving licences that expire after 16 March will remain valid until 1 June 2020. 

Scheme conditions

This scheme only applies to driving licence holders who have a driving licence that needs to be extended every 5 to 10 years. If the driving licence was issued less than 5 years ago you cannot use this scheme. This temporary measure only applies to driving within the Netherlands. People who live in the Netherlands with an expired EU driving licence also fall under this scheme.
