Theory driving test in English

Bericht door anthony » 25 mar 2018, 16:39

Hello Team,
I live in kortrijk with residence A card and wish to take the theory driving licence test in Brussels examination center.
Can I do the exam in English or with an interpreter? What is the center contact details for an appointment and further details. Since I live in Kortrijk West Flanders can I still choose to take the exam in Brussels?
In Brussels I have to pass 41/50 questions or the serious 5 points questions like in Flanders is introduced now in Brussels as well.
Please advice.
Thank you.
Kind regards,
Anthony

If you wish to pass the theory exam B in the Brussels-Capital region and you neither speak French, Dutch or German, you can pass the theory exam, assisted by an interpreter chosen by the examination center under the certified translators.

You will then have to pay an additional fee of € 50 for the assistance of an interpreter.

These exams may be organized in such a way that several candidates who speak and understand the same language, can be brought together.

Make an appointment with one of the examination centers below.

Examination Center Schaerbeek
Kolonel Bourgstraat 118
1140 Brussels
Phone: (02) 726 91 52

Examination Center Anderlecht
Arbeidstraat 3-9 (*)
1070 Brussels
Phone: (02) 529 07 74
________
(*) In French, this is the "rue du Labeur". GOCA translates it into Dutch with "Werkstraat", but there is no such street in Anderlecht (this belongs to the completely normal madness in Belgium).

In the Brussels-Capital region, currently, you loose only 1 point for whatever error. That's why many people of the Flemish region go there, and this is the reason why you have to be patient before you can get an appointment in the Brussels-Capital region.

Hello,

I went to Examination Center Anderlecht but it seems they do not take English interpreter exam anymore.

Could you please confirm once again on this.

The examination center in Anderlecht is still mentioned for the Brussels-Capital region on the GOCA web page about "Theory exam with interpreter"

http://www.goca.be/nl/p/rbw-tolk

According to the following web page of the examination center in Anderlecht

http://www.securiteautomobile.be/permis ... -dexamens/ (click on "Théorique")

they organize exams with interpreter on special demand for such an appointment on Friday:
Sessions spéciales : Avec traducteur
  • Centre d’examen 1021 : Anderlecht.
  • Le vendredi sur demande spécifique – Rendez-vous obligatoire.

Debaets said the main innovation in the theoretical examination was the grading system. There will still be 50 questions and the passing grade remains 41/50 but a serious error will automatically cost the candidate five (5) points, while the penalty for a “slight” error remains one (1) point. As a result, a candidate who commits two serious errors loses 10 points and is automatically disqualified. A similar system is being applied in Flanders and Wallonia.

It's the way the exams were done before 2006

A lot of the changes made in 2006 have since been reversed...
