Driving instruction licence
A driving instruction licence can be granted by the police for a set period, and by law, a new licence cannot be granted without a valid reason. The fee is payable as the application for a licence is submitted.
An instructor may simultaneously hold a licence to instruct two learner drivers at the most.
Before starting to give driving instruction leading to a licence in categories B, AM, A1, A2 and A, a person who does not have a driving instructor qualification must, together with the learner, take part in training that supports instruction under a driving instruction licence at a driving school. The training provided by a driving school must be completed before instruction under a driving instruction licence begins. A driving instruction licence can be granted before the joint training for the instructor and the learner has been completed. The instructor and the learner must carry a certificate stating that they have completed this training when instruction is being provided.
Driving instruction licence for a category B vehicle:
A category B driving instruction licence is issued for two years, and it can at the earliest be granted when the learner turns 17.

The learner must apply to the police for a driving licence permit. For instructions on submitting an application for a driving licence permit, see under the section Driving licence permits.
