The 14 certainties
1. Professional driving instructors
Extremely experienced and highly motivated driving instructors provide your driving training course.
PDS employs five permanent instructors for the driving training courses. They are in possession of the legally required Instructor’s License for Motor Vehicle Driver Instruction. Additionally, all instructors are in possession of the Instructor’s License for OGS+ with which they can provide training with emergency lights and siren for emergency services (police, ambulance and fire brigade). All teachers also provide the most specialist driving training courses for the Dutch Police Academy and are super motivated to transfer their knowledge to you. Your instructor is skilled in its profession, is didactically educated, well-trained and experienced. Without a doubt, you will be trained by a top instructor, whom very few other educators have.
2. Active since 1989
PDS has been active for more than 30 years. You follow the training course at the founders of advanced and specialist driving and security training courses.
PDS is the authority and market leader when it comes to advanced and specialist driving and security training courses. Leading, innovative and with a large and profound range of courses. From a compact basic driving training course to the most specialist driving and security training courses. Are you looking for practically oriented training courses or flexible customised solutions, PDS is the right address.
3. Teacher driving training courses
We have been providing very successful ‘train the trainer’ courses for years.
Do you work as a driving instructor at an emergency service or do you have ambitions to become one? Then do what many others have done before: get professional training from PDS. With the teachter driving training course you lay a very solid foundation to be able to provide the instruction later yourself. A nice demo in cornering technique, passing technique and special handling (with or without emergency lights and siren) is no problem for you.
4. Excellent references
PDS has a very good name and reputation in the market.
The quality of PDS Rijopleidingen is acknowledged by many parties (governments, multinationals, private individuals). The name PDS is the result of years of hard work and building the best driver training. We can provide many excellent references upon request.
5. Driving and security training courses all over the world (and therefor also in risk areas)
Do you work abroad and maybe even in high security risk areas? We can also be of service there.
Do you want to be trained in a country other than the Netherlands? That is possible, we can provide driving and security training courses on location and (almost) anywhere in the world.

The CCV-D1, Basic driver training course for executive driver, and CCV-D2 Advanced driver training course for executive driver, are independently examined by the CCV. To be able to provide these driver training courses, a driver trainer centre must be certified. PDS has been the initiator of this independent examination. We have been certified since the start of the CCV-D exams in 2003.
9. The focus lies on raising the levels of knowledge and insight
The quality to be able to focus on increasing your knowledge and insight.
You want to achieve the highest possible driving skills in the time available? A good driving level mainly depends on your knowledge and insight. That is why the focus is mainly on this during your driver training course. Our instructors will guide you optimally with their years of experience. This will allow you to achieve the maximum achievable.
10. Collective accident insurance
Extra well insured by our collective accident insurance.
Many training centers comply with the legal insurance obligation for the instruction vehicles. Our instruction vehicles are of course insured for this. But PDS also offers you extra security. We have also taken out passenger insurance and a collective accident insurance for you. Not that we ever want to use it, but at least it’s well organized.
11. Our own ultramodern e-learning site, Smart Learning Solutions, to support the practical component of the course
You can study the theory in a pleasant way with our e-learning.
Not everyone is that enthusiastic about learning theory. To make it for you as easy as possible, PDS has its own modern and user-friendly e-learning site. The theory is always easy to follow via Smart Learning Solutions (SLS). For all kind of training courses you can study the supporting theory. At your own pace, at the time you want and on PC, tablet, Ipad or smart phone.
12. Detailed and personal report
After the training you will receive a clear report so that you have a reference work and the description of the driving level you have achieved.
If you have followed a driving training course at PDS with a diploma or official certificate, you will receive an extensive report shortly after completion. This report shows in detail how your driving level has developed during the driving training course and which final level you have achieved. When you followed an application training you will receive a report based on a checklist. All topics covered and the corresponding score are also shown here. This way you can always demonstrate your driving level, for example when you want to apply for a job.
13. You can use different starting locations throughout the Netherlands
PDS uses different starting locations in the Netherlands.
You can start your education at various places in the Netherlands. The starting location is determined in consultation with you and depends, among other things, on the type of training. This can be a central point that is easily accessible for every participant, but also a private practice location. We are happy to inform you about the possibilities.
