In the Netherlands

With millions of riders all over the world, Uber is a great way to make money — but first you need a chauffeurskaart to operate in the Netherlands. A chauffeurskaart (chauffeur's license) is an advanced driving license. You can obtain it after taking a theory and practical exam at CBR. Uber partners with Wolf driving schools. They can offer a discount if you sign up with Uber. It takes about six weeks to obtain your chauffeurskaart.
