Online theory exam practise classroom

But how do we manage this quality? At most theory crash courses you’ll forget 80% of the studied knowledge you’ve learnt in one day. At Theory College Netherlands you start practising and repeating most of the CBR theory exam study material at least two weeks prior to the start of the day course. For example traffic signs and regulations. You’ll receive a login code to which you can log on into our online theory exam practise platform. This will all happen in a relaxed manner on your smartphone, laptop, or tablet where and when it suits you.

Effective and vivid learning technique

At Theory College Netherlands we apply a proven effective and vivid learning technique during the Online Theory Crash Course. Our UK trainers are even certified educators to people who suffer from fear of failure, autism/ADHD and dyslexia. Through our personal, accessible approach we ensure a relaxed, informal atmosphere during the course. We intentionally keep our student-groups small. This way we can also guarantee our personal approach online.
