If you are not in the Netherlands and your Dutch driving licence has expired or is about to expire, the steps you need to take depend on where you live.
Outside the EU/EEA you must have a valid driving licence. Driving with an expired licence there is an offence and you will not be insured.
If you live in the Netherlands but are currently abroad, you cannot renew your driving licence until you are back in the Netherlands. Then you can renew your licence in the municipality where you live. You will need to renew your licence in person, unless your municipality offers an online renewal service.
Check which municipalities allow you to renew your driving licence online (RDW.nl, information in Dutch)
If your municipality is not listed, go to their website to find out how to renew your licence.
If you live in another European Union (EU) country or in Iceland,
Liechtenstein or Norway you cannot renew your Dutch driving licence. You can only exchange it for a driving licence issued by the country in which you live. This is required by European rules.
