Every ten years it’s that time: if you want to keep driving, you have to renew your driver’s license. You can go to the city hall for this, but you can also renew your driving license online in The Hague. An additional advantage: that is a lot faster than the ‘old-fashioned’ way. You can read how it works here.

You can extend your driving license online via the

RDW. That is the Government’s Road Traffic Service. This process is at least 3 working days faster than when you apply for your driving license extension at the municipality. The costs at the RDW are 44,65 euros, which is the same amount as if you personally renew your driving license by making an appointment at the municipality.

Download the DigiD app

Before you can renew your driving license online, you have to go through a number of steps. First install the DigiD app on your phone or tablet. The app checks your identity before you can renew your driving licence. Once this has been done, you pay the costs for your application via iDEAL.

New passport photo

It is required to have a new passport photo taken, so you cannot

use a passport photo that you happen to have in your wallet to sit. The photo must be taken by a photographer who is recognized by the RDW.

If you have made an appointment with the photographer, please bring your old driver’s license or driver’s license number. The photographer will send your passport photo and signature securely to the RDW, so that the photo can be placed on your new driving licence. Have you gone through the steps? Then your new driving license will be ready for you at the town hall after two working days. You don’t have to make an appointment to pick it up.

Renew your driving license online condition

Note: to renew a driving license online, you must be registered in the Municipal Personal Records Database (BRP) of the Municipality of The Hague. This means that you are registered in The Hague. Do you need a medical examination? Have this done before renewing your driver’s license.

    Vintage or thrift store

    There must be stuff in your house that is too good to just throw away. Then take it to a thrift store or a second-hand store.

    Textile container

    While tidying up, do you find a pair of trousers that are now hopelessly out of fashion? Then throw it in a clothing container. You can not only store clothes in these containers, but also other textiles such as old dishcloths, bedding or curtains. These substances are then reused and not just thrown away!

  • Where in The Hague is the best place to eat? The jury members of the restaurant guide Gault&Millau investigated this. Their conclusion: at no less than 41 restaurants in The Hague you are in the right place. Very good. They are all in the new Gault&Millau guide, which will be published on Monday 01 February was presented.

    About Gault&Millau

    The Gault&Millau restaurant guide can be compared to the Michelin guide. With one important difference: restaurants at Gault&Millau are symbolically awarded with chef’s hats instead of stars. How many chef hats a restaurant gets depends on a number of factors. For example, the taste of the dishes is of course important, but also the reception, advice for wine, atmosphere and much more.

    Nineteen categories

    have in total 728 restaurants in the Netherlands made it to the guide, 63 are included for the first time. The restaurants are divided into nineteen categories, including best vegetable restaurant, best cocktail bar, but also the most beautiful terrace and best sommelier.

    Swipe left to see which Hague restaurants are in the guide.

    Best Wine List

    Restaurants can earn chef’s hats in several categories. In The Hague no restaurant is the very best in one of the categories, but in a municipality nearby. Central Park in Voorburg has the best wine list in the Netherlands! “Guests are in good hands with chefs Tim Bood and Hette Hettema who guarantee a pampering kitchen”, we read in the jury report. “In Joey de Kruijf, Central Park also has a special in-house sommelier who has made the wine offer his life’s work and has been awarded the recognition as Wine List of the Year 2023.”

    Restaurant 6&24

    6&24 is the first in The Hague restaurant that you see in the guide. “In the old city center of The Hague, chef Rik van de Laar serves his guests pure and refined flavors in a sturdy and colorful restaurant that is built like a grandstand. For example, all tables have a view of the street in the Hofkwartier in The Hague”, according to the jury. 6&02 scores three chef’s hats.

    The champagne can also be popped at Calla’s; the restaurant is featured in the new Gault&Millau guide. The jury report states: “Don’t expect screaming flavours, but balance and refinement and an absolute love for the product.” They also score three chef’s hats.

    The jury was also impressed by Zheng. The restaurant on the Prinsestraat is a household name in The Hague. The jury report of this Chinese restaurant states: “A culinary feast awaits you here too, presented on beautiful crockery. The menu consists of successive chapters, each time focusing on one traditionally prepared ingredient, coupled with contemporary and international creations. Fusion at its best.”

    Nice indoor shopping is of course great at Westfield Mall of the Netherlands in Leidschendam. Now that it’s so cold outside, we stopped by the mall. And guess what? There are quite a few new shops.


    Aerie opened in October in the center of The Hague and has been open in the Mall for a month. The brand is focused on body positivity: “We want everyone to feel confident inside and out. Let the real you shine”, we read on the website.


    Aerie offers you lingerie, swimwear, sweaters, hoodies, tank tops and leggings.

    Flying Tiger

    Since a few weeks you can also let loose in the Mall at the Flying Tiger. The store, known for its many colorful gadgets, is doing well in The Hague, so the store will probably score well here too.


    Everything for the household of the Tefal brand has now also been given a place at the Mall. Coffee machine? Pan? You have everything.
