As of the 1st of October 2023, candidates aiming to obtain a Category AM driver’s license will have the option to take the practical exam using a speed pedelec.
For those interested in riding a speed pedelec, it is essential to hold either a Category AM or A driver’s license, unless they already possess a Category B license. Previously, the Category AM exam required candidates to use a conventional scooter for testing.
One of the key highlights of this update is the introduction of examination maneuvers specifically designed for speed pedelecs. This adjustment in the driving exam procedure is of significant importance, considering the accident statistics related to speed pedelecs.

To our knowledge, Flanders is the very first to introduce a specific AM-exam for speed pedelecs. Do you know of any other countries or regions in the EU who already have such a specific exam for speed pedelecs? Do let us know by mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
