Traffic manager in the Netherlands


A job as traffic manager in the Netherlands. Less congestion, more safety

Written by Rick Mulders

The Netherlands is a country with a lot of busy roads and a lot of cars. Sometimes there will be circumstances in which the standard situation, such as an intersection or a side street in a certain area becomes temporarily insufficient. Due to an accident, road block or malfunction of traffic lights, for example. In those cases, traffic controllers will help to let traffic run smoothly again. The job of a traffic controller requires skill and proper organisation. To become a traffic controller in the Netherlands, you must complete a professional education. Opleiding Verkeersregelaar offers this training and other training that can help you become a professional traffic manager. We are the most well-known educational institute in the Netherlands offering traffic manager training, with a graduation percentage of 99%.

After finishing the theory module with an exam, we will start the practical element. These informative practical lessons will take place on the public road, which provides a proper sense of reality. Once you are fully prepared for a job as a traffic controller, you can apply for the exam. During the exam, you will be asked to control traffic at a certain intersection for about 15 minutes, all by yourself. The instructor will pay attention to points like your position, insight and performance. Once you successfully complete this exam, we will give you your certificate.
