Question about driving license

Post by mekel17 » Fri Oct 06, 2017 9:11 pm

Hi, I am a foreigner living in Oulu. I took the driving test but I failed and the payment for driving school is very expensive. I believe that I have the skill to pass but my problem is I get too nervous during the test. I think I need to practice more behind the wheels but unfortunately, it will cost me 65euro/hr. Is it possible to drive a car here in Finland if I have a passenger who has a driving license? I just want to practice more behind the wheels to be more comfortable.

Thank you for those who will answer.

Without a license you can practise on private property that is blocked off from public roads.

That is very expensive. Come to Estonia and make the driving test here and practice doesn't cost too much 1 hour also.
I would never pay 65 euros/hour for practice. That is almost insane.

How can you make a driving license in Estonia when you are not a resident in Estonia ?

Sorry, I didn't think of that.

Actually, that person must have a teaching license and of course there should be a car that has a brake on the passenger side.

Or, you drive on a field/forest away from public roads. It's the only place where you don't need license. You can actually post on facebook group called "Työtä, palveluja tarjotaan/tarvitaan Pohjois-pohjanmaa" for help (if you use facebook). You might get someone willing to help you at a lesser price.

Thank you for all your reply. One more thing, is it possible to transfer driving school since I finished already the required driving hours? Is just that my driving school is always fully booked. It's like I need to book 2weeks in advance and if I failed again the driving test, then I need to wait for 2weeks again. 2 weeks of frustration. Thank you all

Yes, you can use other school if you want.
