I'm 17 in a few months and getting a car and was just curious if it's ok for me and a couple of mates to drive to the Netherlands. Would there be no problems with the border control and etc?

I used to live in Holland we drove to the UK all the time when I was a kid, just needed a passport. The driving age in NL is 18 though so I'm not sure if you'll be able to drive around there even if your license is valid here, but it's not something I've ever tried so not too sure. Getting in and out of the country though shouldn't be an issue

I know for sure that a British driving licence is valid across all of Europe (same with any other countries).

Then you definitely won't have any problem! Doubt things have changed drastically since I did it, should be smooth sailing

To hire, not to drive in your own car that you're legally allowed to own.

The driving licence requirements when on the roads in the Netherlands are that you must hold a valid licence from your country of residence and be at least 18 years old.
