All participating countries provide one candidate for the final and national competitions have already begun.

The finalists competed against each other in various tests, such as driving as economically, defensively and with as much anticipation as possible. But the national final also focused on extensive vehicle checks, maneuvering and social skills.

The Dutch edition of the Driver Challenge took place on the DAF test track in Sint Oedenrode. At the end of an intensive day, the winner was, a driver at Dobbe Transport from Roelofarendsveen. “I turned out to be the most economical with the EcoDrive with a score of 99%. This is so cool," says the bewildered winner. “My secret: think about everything you do."
