Talking Driving Test in Cyprus

Hello All
My partner and I are moving to Paphos early September, being very busy back in England before the move I will not have a chance to take my driving test.
I was just wondering whether someone could give me some details on this, do you have to be a resident for a certain amount of time etc?

Thanks guys

Hi,

You have to be resident for 6 months before you can apply for your Cypriot provisional licence and then apply to take the test

If you mean the driving test then no, the examiners speak English

Yes, they ask a few questions on the Highway Code and test your sight, if you pass they issue you a provisional. I believe the examiners also ask Highway Code questions as part of the driving test, but that's it as far as theory goes!
Wish me luck...

Oh Damn that's a long time before I can take my test! Is it the same for cycle license?
Maybe I will get a scooter whilst I wait to be able to do my car test.
I have heard about brits going over to Cyprus to do their motorcycle license, is this true?

Thanks

Some things are straight forward for the female driving test for example you must be able to breast feed, use a mobile phone and steer with your foot (all at the same time.)
Veronica and Geraldine like this.

is the uk driving license valid at all times, or do you need to convert it to a Cypriot license at some point?

Thanks

Martijn

I believe it is good until your 70th birthday.
