What you need to know about obtaining your license

The practice classes refer to the actual road driving practice, on city streets in the company of an authorized instructor while theoretical classes focus mainly on solving theoretical driving tests known as DRPCIV and studying road laws currently in practice.
Solving tests should only be attempted after having read the road law book that includes every aspect of pedestrian and vehicle behavior on public roads at least twice. Although the web is filled with driving tests claiming they are the absolute best, it is highly recommended to only use the official DRPCIV tests for practice.
