Your coaches sign up first. You can do this on this page. Only when all coaches have signed in, you can request the supervisorcard.
You need to have the supervisorcard before you can apply for your license in your community. We recommend doing this at least a month before your practical exam. To apply for your supervisorcard you go to DigiD. The cost for the application are € 35,-. These costs must be paid with iDEAL.
After the RDW have received and controled the application for the supervisorcard the card will be sent within 10 working days.
For questions about the application of the supervisorcard you can contact the RDW at email@example.com or call them on 0900-0739.
