    That trucking license.. would now cost you around 20.000 euro's (the whole course to become a lorry driver). I am not kidding you. 20.000 bluddy euro's and I remember that because I started with the course back in 2004 or so. The normal driving license would be anything between 2200 to 2700, I think ?

    Well back then the government was financing a lot, so if not for my employer I would've had to pay alot more.

    As for the normal b license nowadays... My son got his in the Netherlands two years ago and went on one of those speed courses. It put him down for 2200 euros for a ten day course. Normal price would've been 1800 for ten lessons and exame.
