FFS Hello - this is classic Polish ********.
You harp on about PIS being the way forward and yet you advocate corruption? Anybody who sells a driving licence needs banging up in prison - not being encouraged.
Likewise - anyone who gets into the police car to "discuss" the amount of the fine is as bent and corrupt as the officials.This behaviour is perpetuating the disease and people who do this are guilty of collusion. I always cut the discussion short - I insist on being addressed properly, as I treat the police with respect - I am not "Pan John" for example - and just pay the fine with the proper paperwork.
Having said that, since the latest run in 3 years ago I do the 60 km an hour where demanded and just leave home earlier.
And that is why I will never apply for a Polish licence. With respect, there is no way I would relinguish my UK licence for everybody, as our standards are......somewhat higher than the standards demanded by your government.
No offence meant people - but I earnt that licence the hard way by learning to drive on British roads. The legal point is mute, as a British licence for a Britain settled in Poland is null and void - so I would happily get a Polish licence but I must be able to keep my British licence for when I travel to Britain. For obvious reasons a driver can only hold one licence but there are lots of ways round that problem anyway still apparently.
My view is nothing to do with nationalism - the Polish authorities could even do a communist trick, and hand me my British licence at the airport, but as said, no way am I driving overseas on a Polish licence - as it is not very favourably recieved in my local car hire firm.............
Whoever wrote when in Poland do as the Poles do wasn't interested in empowering everybody and reminding them that communism is dead and the battle is won, and now the small things are the things that really matter and are worth doing battle for.
For example, your transport registration department are communist through and through and can kiss my royal arse.
How much difficult it is to pass the driving test in Poland ?
LOL - I have bad news for you. First time you have absolutely zero chance. The test is entirely subjective and consists of doing something that you will never ever ever ever ever ever do ever again.
Namely, reversing in a closed tarmac area through lines of tightly packed traffic cones. LOL mother of GOD.
The only reason they devised this test is to steal your money when a rear wheel touches a cone which seemed to have moved......
Hopefully PO will stop this nasty corrupt way of making money and actually test people on what they do in real life - ie take them out on the bloody road.
Doesn't this test make you guys feel ashamed of being the laughing stock?
