You would. But if you are a German resident (or if you are migrating to Germany) you can switch it to German one.

In theory, you should be a Polish resident (which means that you should live in Poland for more than 182 days in year) to take an exam, but in reality nobody checks it anyway.

Few months ago it was in the news that illiterate people from Romania made their driving licenses in Hungary. The method was that you can pass the theoretical exam as an oral exam with an interpreter if you don't speak Hungarian. With some bribe, the illiterate just said something to the interpreter who then said the correct answer...

^ Indeed, a lot of driving licenses were revoked following the discovery of this fraud. The entire scheme was conceived by some ethnic Roma and I must admit it was pretty ingenious.

Nowadays it is much more expensive also in Slovakia. I mean 350 € is the lowest price, due to new law you have to pass first aid training. (you have to know it )

Yes, I've passed the test couple of years ago. Back then it was possible for more or less this price. However, there wasn't the Euro yet, so it's difficult to convert it precisely. The first aid training wasn't obligatory back then too. Ah, old good times.

On the other hand, I kinda regret there weren't obligatory first aid lessons. It must be fun:

we had first aid lessons (and exam) since allways. it is extremely boring. i didn't learn anything special there, and our instructor (usually doctors come and have lessons) told us: this is all theory, but if somewhen you find somebody really hurt and injured in accident, the best thing you can do is to call 112, and not to play doctor with him - you will 99% make him worse if you try to immobilize his broken arm or leg.

btw, driving school here costs over 1000€ (and 11 years ago when I attended it costed about 250€ )

You might just as well have to perform CPR on a dude. In that case i do not think you would enjoy doing as illustrated in the video (unless you're homosexual of course)

In Greece it's forbidden for driving school cars to drive on a motorway (at least that's what my teacher said 3 years ago).
However you are allowed to drive with no restrictions on motorways etc the day you get your license!

I'm currently in the middle of my driving school lessons. Tomorrow I will have a CPR lesson....
The whole driving license will cost 550 €, which doesn't seems to be a lot according to other countries. The only bad thing is that it's not allowed for me to drive in foreign countries, because I'm only 17 .

In Hungary is not a same age like in every single EU country? I haven`t already heard about that. In Slovakia (probably also in other states) you can start school lessons till 17, but you get license if you are 18.

AFAIK in Germany you still need someone with at least 5 years of driving experience next to you when you're still 17. When you've turned 18, you can drive by yourself.

Hey, I'm going to do this 10 day thing. It's most of the times cheaper and you'll get your license faster. Great thing to do over the summer. My dad just send me a couple of websites. I could give you the links if you're interested?

I have my theory exam tomorrow. Making a driver's license costs around € 450 in Estonia with all the necessary exams and a first aid course included. It's compulsory in Estonia to do 40 x 25min of practice, 41 x 45min of theory and go through a first aid course before you can take the exams. Then you will receive a beginner's license which you will have for 2 years. During that time you cannot drive faster than 90km/h and you also have to attend a slippery-surface driving course(6 x 45min of theory, 8 x 25 min of practice).
