The most horrible experience I had in Czech Republic

Very unprofessional approach, very greedy man, he would accept a lot of students at the same time without being able to offer enough lessons. I've been taking classes for a whole year with massive breaks in between (up to three months) still without being provided sufficient preparation, in result I failed the exam twice and wasn't even contacted to repeat the exam. My conclusion, it's a rip off!! Heard from other people they had as bad experience.

Being an experienced driver from Canada, I was pleased that Petr gave me ample practise driving time in Prague yet not more time than necessary as I prepared for the tests. He made me aware of driving practises that I needed to pay attention to, all with the goal of seeing me succeed. Petr communicates well in english and I found him both professional in manner and very personable as well. I am happy to recommend him to others needing to be comfortable & licensed to drive in the Czech Republic.

I've had a drivers license from the USA for many years, and Petr was able to teach me everything I needed to know to become a safe driver in the Czech Republic, and also pass the test needed for a Czech driver's license. He will be able to tell you what you need to focus on and what is important to not only be a good driver in this country, but also what is needed to pass test. He will drill those things into you until you remember them. Listen to him, and you'll be happy you did. I am!

I'm by no means a natural driver but I passed my Czech test first time with Petr Sim. He's an excellent and very dedicated driving instructor, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend his services.

I have had a driver's license for many years in my home country, but finally had to take the plunge and become "official" in the CR. After speaking to other expats and taking in the reviews with a grain of salt, I contacted Petr. He was very prompt in responding, extremely helpful along the way, as accommodating schedule-wise as any busy professional can be, and, most importantly, he helped to put me at ease with the never-ending Czech bureaucracy. Like anything else in life, you get out of something what you put into it. While there are not many good English-language resources out there, all the test questions are online and are freely available for practice. Petr has a team of extremely talented interpreters who sit the exam with you and take all the stress and worry out of ANY possible language barrier issues. Other than the fact that Czech law is ridiculous and requires experienced drivers to pay for a course (no fault of Petr's), my entire experience with Petr Sim was positive and painless. One bit of advice - if you are busy and do not have a flexible schedule, just ask Petr to confirm your lesson with you the night before so everyone is on the same page and there is no miscommunication. That said, he always kept his word and our appointments.
