Driving licence G

A specific driving licence is required to drive agricultural and forestry vehicles and mobile agricultural equipment on public roads: the driving licence valid for category G. The tractor G licence is valid for agricultural or forestry tractors - for 'slow transport' (max. 40km/h) - and their trailers, as well as vehicles registered as agricultural equipment, agricultural motorbikes or mowers.

If such vehicles are not used for agricultural or forestry activities, a driving licence for category B, B+E, C1, C1+E, C or C+E is required, depending on the maximum authorised mass of the vehicle or combination.

Anyone born after 30/09/1982 is legally required to obtain a G licence to drive a tractor on public roads.

The age to take the theoretical exam is 15 years and 9 months. From 16 years of age, the practical exam can also be taken.

IMPORTANT: before starting practical lessons, the candidate must have passed the theoretical exam for the G licence (if you already have a car licence, you have to take the theoretical exam again)

If you pass the theoretical exam, this remains valid for 3 years. For the practical exam there is a different validity, after you have passed on your manoeuvres this also remains valid for only 1 year. If you have then failed on the public road, you will also have to retake your manoeuvres.
