Hi. I would also be very interested in hearing of any schools. I have my license from ireland but have never driven in poland before so would like to get some lessons.

The one mentioned is a good one, although pricey (1700zl) if you're not taking the classes in Polish. My girlfriend's with them at the minute and she has no complaints, and the guy running the school is a very straight forward, no bullshit kind of guy.

Be warned though, you need to have a sworn translator present during the test - and these aren't cheap at all. I was quoted 120PLN for an hour's translation, for instance.

That's not inclusive of the test costs - just the 30 hours of theory, first aid and 30 hours of driving.

But if you speak Polish, then you can get driving lessons in Poznan for as little as 950zl all in.

i've tried googling for driving schools in poznan thatz in english..

can't find any other school but the one noticed above,

i guess thatz why the cost for english cource is very pricey

the test cost 135zl (you go to word to take it) and for retake is 100zl...
and theory test can be in english, no translater is needed; i am not sure about the driving test.
i am a bit worried cuz the owner of the school told me that in poland therez 38% of the ppl fail the driving test on first attempt. :(

Can be, but it depends on the test centre.

The two parts of the driving portion of the test need a sworn translator. There's no way round this - it's enshrined in law.

As for 38% failing - is 250zl a time really going to break the bank?

Right, what does a picture of a deer plus 'koniec' mean? :D

It means that some sad council worker has been paid to pinpoint the exact place where the deer have finished jumping on vehicles and it promises drivers that there is no chance that a dear will jump on their car as the deer have finished at that precise point.
