Driving a tractor

Who dreamt of driving tractors as a child? In agricultural or forestry, this dream is part of everyday life and young people are eligible to obtain the corresponding licence.

Class L

Entry into the world of agricultural towing machines. Class L allows you to tow up to two trailers without requiring the prescribed driver training. Pay attention to your speed: your tractor drives at maximum 40 km/h and not faster than 25 km/h when towing a trailer. By the way, with a class B or BE passenger car driver's licence, you automatically have the class L driver's licence.
