Indian driving license and driving in Belgium
Indian license are NOT recognized by Belgium and, if you become a resident, you will need to pass both the theory test and the driving test.
You may however drive with an Indian International license as long as you have not become a resident and up to 6 months at the most after having registred in the commune.
You need to wait until you have your Belgian ID card before you can start the process of getting a Belgian driving license.
Note that the examination takes place (in Brussels) in the examination centre of Colonel Bourg. 2-3 times a week at 08:00 am but due to delays you have to plan about 2 months in advance, go in person there to register for an exam date with translator (cost € 15 fee + € 50 translator fee).
Do not wait until you have studied the full theory book to register or you will have time to forget. you need 41/50 to pass and 2 failures will require 12h of compulsory driving rules study in a driving school.
As switching from the correct(left) side to the right side, managing priorities, bus lanes and special sites,.....take a bit of time, 6 hours of driving school is often useful and needed to meet the standards of the practical exam.
Many Indian citizens have gone to the European Driving School in Ixelles http://www.autoecoleeuropeenneixelles.sitew.be/#Contact.D for 4 to 6 hours of pre exam training. Also, ensure you can use engine brake in addition to braking as this is often the cause of failures.
Fee for the exam is € 36,00 + translator € 50-60 and if via a driving school, fee for the car and instructor of about € 100.
