“Hello, I’m interested in driving licence do you offer service like this?” it’s the among most common question which you ask us. And for sure we offer a service for getting a driving license here in Czech Republic. And we are trying to help as much as we can, but be sure that the most difficult part is up to you.
How to get a driving licence
In this part, I would like to explain to you the important details of the whole process.
The first thing is to decide that you want to do it. After, contact us and we will tell you what to do next. Also, you can check our web page Foreigners.cz where you can find all the information which you need.
The important thing is to have all papers which you need for the driving school prepared before you go there. Without these required documents, they will not let you join the lesson.
And what are the documents about?
- The first document has to be filled in by you, GP doctor and by the Driving school
- The second document has to be filled in by GP doctor
- The third document has to be filled in by Driving school (you don’t need to worry about this)
For those who are from Europe
Do not forget that for those who are from Europe, and want to do the driving licence here in Czech you need at least confirmation that you are a student or temporary residence from Immigration office, and it needs to show that you have been in the Czech Republic for 6 months and more.
For Immigration office you need
- ID / passport,
- Purple application for temporary residence (at the Foreigners department)
- 1/2 photo
- confirmation of provided accommodation from the lessor/landlord (the signature has to be officially certified at the post office)
- confirmation of studying (paper one from the study department/coordinator, ISIC is not enough) or your job contract – depends on the purpose of your stay
- insurance – do you have any commercial insurance or you have just an EU card? EU card (the blue one) is enough!
For those who are NOT from the EU
You don’t have to worry about it because you are already registered in the Immigration office.
Also, the price is important for you. The driving licence cost approximately 15 500 CZK (UPD 2019, the price doesn’t include an interpreter). If you speak Czech the price is cheaper, and after the fees are coming.
For the GP the price is around 270 CZK it’s up to the doctor how much will charge so if you know one try to ask him, he might give you a better price. The payment for the final exam is 700 CZK which can’t be lower as it is made by the Czech government.
And the last fee is for the official translator for the exam and it’s again up to the translator how much he/she will charge but remember that they will help you a lot during the exam time 😉
The payment can be discussed with the driving school and there might be a possibility to divide the payment in two so it will not be so huge amount of money for you.
And what to do after you finish all the paper works? We make an appointment for you in the driving school and after it’s up to you and the driving school. What you should know is DO NOT BE AFRAID OF ASKING!
You need something – ask, do not understand – ask, miss some information – ask. It isn’t a weakness but the opposite 😉
And what happened when you will successfully pass? – CELEBRATION of course..;)
But more important is that you have to go to the Municipality of Hradec Kralove to apply for the driver license.
Your instructor will help you to apply as in the office they do not speak English. And for this application prepare 50 CZK. After you have to wait approximately 30 days till you can come back with a paper which was given to you in the first visit and you will just pick up the driver license and that’s all!
Keep up with us, coz next week our client will let you know how is it to get driving licence from her point of view 😉
