Can I exchange my driving licence?
You can exchange your licence for a Dutch one depending on your situation. If you do not meet the conditions you cannot exchange your licence for a Dutch one. This means you will need to take a standard theory and practical test.

Applying for a parking permit differs per municipality. At the Municipality of The Hague, there are three ways to apply for a parking permit: online, in writing or in person.

With your DigiD (short for Digital Identification), you can prove your identity online to hundreds of government organisations in order to get access to their services. It is like a digital version of your passport or driving licence.
