Will the costs of a driving licence be returned to me when I have the 30% ruling?


My Spanish driving license is expiring in 3 months. If I exchange it here in Nederland, and I have to pay for it, will this cost be returned when I get the 30% ruling, or must I have this rule BEFORE exchanging my driving license?


The costs of exchanging your driving license will not be returned under the 30% ruling, it is only easier to exchange it since you do not have to pass a driving exam which others will have to who don’t have the 30% ruling.

See (article is prepared at the time the 30% ruling was still the 35% ruling).
