He wants to buy a license instead of sitting the test.

It's illegal and he'll more than likely get scammed if he persists.

Guys like this think Poland is the wild east and that you can do whatever you like so long as you have mucho diniro.

Might be an idea to ask there. The people that live in Poland that have answered here have said it's not going to happen. I guess you could walk into a drivers course and offer them a massive amount of money and hope for the best.

Wouldn't help a bit - you still need to prove that you're resident for more than 185 days in Poland legally. Some driving centres are also interpreting this to mean "actually resident for 185 days before sitting the test".

You can sit the course anytime you like, though.

For what it's worth, you can apparently buy a Ukrainian driving licence very easily - and you can exchange it to an EU licence without a test.

For what it's worth, a trip to L'viv should yield the goodies.

because he was driving drunk, lost his driving license and now he is looking for a chance to get a new in another country.

no.
we have to pay 1200 PLN for an driving course then 250 PLN for an exam.

haha. Most people has to take exam 3 times before they pass! It seems there is no way to bribe an examinator. ;)



To the OP: maybe polish drivers are bad but believe me they don't get driving license in any "easy way"...

You mean, like not getting a license the regular way but buying one = i.e. illegally?
Not that getting a license in the legal way guarantees anything. What I see here in Warsaw on the roads in one day...I did not see back home in a year :)

If you're from Europe, you can just trade your license for a Polish one. Easy as that.

Likewise here.

Then again, I'm just as guilty - speed limits? what are they?

I didn't say which speed limits I've been breaking... ;)

(there's a divided 4 lane road here, where at night, you can do 100km/h comfortably without endangering anyone, because it's empty - it's a 70km/h limit, because it's dangerous during the day)

Me too, the standard of driving during the day is just...insane. Heck, today, it had been raining heavily for hours, yet some idiot was tailgating me while I was doing 60km/h :/

They're the things that you don't reach, come'on man up, you drive like an, ahem, elderly lady :)

I go to work by foot, sometimes pass out at work. But nothing better than a motorcycle for the city. Full of adrenaline, near death experiences, good fun.

Oh, and kids following us at home. You can't put points on a US drivers license. No use in even switching it over.

Listen, it is not possible to buy a genuine driving license in the European Union! The only way to get a Polish driving license is if you are a citizen or long-time resident and have a residence permit. Bribing your way through the exam is not a viable option as the instructors are closely watched and it even occurs that conversations in the cars are recorded.

It is possible to buy a fake EU driving licenses of very good quality, but it will never pass for genuine if you are stopped by the police. Keep in mind that being in possession of a fake driving license is a serious criminal offense.

I highly doubt that a Ukrainian driving license can be exchanged for a Polish driving license. The rules are the same in all EU countries and therefore Poland has to apply the same rules as all other member states of the union. Residents of Poland with a Ukrainian driving license would have to pass the exam before they can exchange their driving license for a Polish one.

And no, there is absolutely no exception to the resident rule to get a Polish driving license. Sweden is one of the most expensive and hardest countries in the world to get a driving license in, so it would be a treat for Swedish people if they could come to Poland and get a Polish driving license.

Poland is not some banana republic where money can buy everything. Please keep in mind that I do not imply that it is easy to get a Polish driving license, just that it is much harder in Sweden than in Poland. Do not post your email in the forum as spam bots will pick it up.

Wrong. It's a straight swap due to Ukraine and Poland both signing the Vienna Convention on Road Traffic. And yes, you can obtain a Ukrainian licence without any effort whatsoever - money can certainly buy you a valid and real Ukrainian licence.

However, of course, you must comply with the Polish law on issuing of licences. The interpretation of this law varies though.

Now, the tricky part comes with different EU countries. For instance, the UK won't exchange a licence that has previously been exchanged for an EU licence (for instance - a Ukrainian licence exchanged for a Polish licence).
