Aha. You must drive with an instructor then?

Almost. You have to drive accompanied by someone with a full licence. It is not compulsory to learn to drive with a formal driving instructor. For example your Dad can teach you or give additional driving practice.

As an aside there is a point of British law involved here. When you drive on a provisional licence you are the driver but the accompanying full licence holder is in charge of the car and legally responsible.

It is the same in Sweden. Only difference is that the "Dad" must take a 3 x 2 hour theory lessons on a driving school

I think that it is almost impossible to harmonize how hard or easy it is to get a licence. Test inspectors are human.

If you are a truck or bus driver in Germany, over 45 y.o and need to renew your licence you need also to do a complicated test in something like a simulator to get a new licence. This way all get the same chance to pass or fail.

Hello, I moved to Cyprus in August 2016 and want to sit my driving test. When I moved here in August I stayed in hotels until October 2016, then I moved in with my parents. I called a local driving instructor and he advised that I must have government documents in my name to take my test... this I don't have as it's in my parents name. I have been in full time employment in Cyprus since I moved here. Is there any other way to prove residency to enable me to sit my test?

I imagine he's talking about something like a Passport to prove identity, rather than some sort of proof of residency?

You should have applied for your yellow slip by now. Once you have that it will be ample proof of your residency.

It may well do but is not relevant to the original question. He does not have a licence and wishes to pass a test to get one. He wants to do it now, not wait a few years to see if the laws change.

I am assuming that Marc does not have a driving licence at all. If he had a UK one there would be no problem providing the picture part of it is current.
