It isn't that far to the backseat anyway.

Driving instructors in Holland can trade lessons for sex, cabinet ministers reportedly declared.

After debate over the controversial practice came up in a recent parliament meeting, minister of security and justice Ard van der Steur and infrastructure and environment minister Melanie Schultz van Haegen gave their interpretation: Offering driving lessons for nookiedid not equal prostitution "since sex was not being sold," Dutch News reported. But the opposite, a student offering sex for driving lessons, was a no-no.

A story in USA Today noted that while prostitution is legal in the Netherlands, opponents of the so-called "ride for a ride" trend feared the income from a prostitution-branded arrangement couldn't be taxed because the escort would not be properly licensed.

The ministers conceded the barter was "undesirable" but reiterated it was legal, Dutch News said.

As long as the instructor makes the deal, two consenting adults have the green light to enter into such a bargain.

"It is important that the initiative lies with the driving instructor and focuses on offering a driving lesson, with the payment provided in sexual acts," they wrote in a letter to parliament, per the Telegraph.

Web searches for driving lessons for sex are accelerating, the outlet noted.

This sure isn't the driver's ed we remember.
