Women are allowed to pay their driving lessons by having sex with their instructors, according to Dutch Government.

Justice Minister Ard van der Steur and Transport Minister Melanie Schultz van Haegan confirmed that driving schools are not breaking the law if they take payment in the form of sexual favours.

They said the increasingly common practice was perfectly legal.

They were forced to address the issues after a police investigation in Rotterdam uncovered a large number of online adverts for people offering driving lessons in exchange for 'personal services.'

While the ministers were criticised in parliament they said that offering lessons in exchange for sex did not amount to 'illegal prostitution' as sex was not being sold.

However, they warned that these transactions could only be done by those over the age of 18. 

The two ministers also added that drivers who partake in these practices could not be struck off as there was no danger to traffic on the road.
