Expats make up around 70% of our candidate drivers. At LIMA, we have more than 15 years of experience in teaching expats how to drive in the Netherlands and Amsterdam. LIMA was the first driving school in Amsterdam where you could choose to drive sustainably in a Tesla Model 3. In 2024 we fully converted to teaching Tesla-only (electric, automatic driving). All of our instructors speak English and understand that it isn’t always easy to combine a full-time job with a driving-course. We also get it that sometimes a driving license is needed (very) fast. We are there to help! Contact us for an introductory lesson.

Driving a Tesla, powered by the sun

Do you recycle, bring your own bag when shopping and ride your bike when you can? Now you can bring your green lifestyle to your driving as well. LIMA driving school is a forerunner in sustainable driving. Our driving school was the first in Amsterdam to offer the option to drive a Tesla Model 3. In 2024 we said goodbye to our last combustion engine car and traded it in for a Tesla Model Y. That means we have now fully transitioned to zero CO₂ emission cars at our driving school. 

And what about the electricity that the Tesla runs on? LIMA goes for green by sourcing electricity from Amsterdam Energy, a local renewable energy cooperation (sources from wind, biomass and solar panels). By learning how to drive in an automatic, electric car like the Tesla you have a positive impact on the air quality in Amsterdam. And did you know that Teslas are fully vegan? By choosing LIMA as your driving school you are part of the future of sustainable driving.

Need your License fast?

Driving school LIMA is here for you to make it happen. We will create a tailored program so you can reach your goal of getting your Dutch driving license for electric, automatic cars in time. Make an appointment for a free trial-lesson so we can advise you further and create a personalized fast track.
