You’re ready to upgrade to a Czech driver’s license but are not sure where to start. This video by the driving experts at Autoškola King offers great advice about what to consider when choosing a driving school in the Czech Republic. (The video is in Czech with English subtitles.)

Pavel Greiner, owner of Autoškola King, explains it’s important to do your homework beforehand. You want to be sure that what the school is advertising online matches what is being offered in reality. Take time to visit in person. Do the classrooms and fleet meet your needs?  

If the price is too good to be true, it probably is, warns Greiner. The total price – check that VAT is factored into the fee upfront – should include theory and training lessons. Those learning to drive passenger cars can expect to receive 28 45-minute behind-the-wheel sessions. 

Driving schools might also offer first-aid and car maintenance training. Many will let you choose between manual and automatic transmission.  

Once you’ve picked your school, it’s time to apply. Autoškola King knows that some first-time drivers might be a bit nervous. The school prides itself on using a human approach throughout the experience – from signups to the final exam. It’s easy to register. Just bring your application form and a medical report from your general practitioner to Autoškola King’s office to secure your spot.   

The school accepts Czech permanent or temporary residents, lease-holders as well as students who can confirm they will be studying in the Czech Republic for a minimum of six months.
