How to find English-speaking driving schools in Berlin

A guide to find the best English-speaking driving school for your car or motorcycle driving license.

Posted on - last updated on

In order to get a German driving license, you are required to take driving lessons. These include at least 14 hours of theory and 12 hours of driving. You must then take a theoretical driving exam and a practical driving exam.

The German theoretical driving exam is taken on a computer and is available in 11 different languages: English, French, Greek, Italian, Croatian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Spanish and Turkish.

If you already had a driving license in your country of origin, you might already be allowed to drive in Germany, or you might be able to trade your foreign license for a German one without taking any lessons.

English-speaking theory classes are only offered by two driving schools: Fahrschule Oscar and Fahrschule Prenzlauer Berg. You don't need English theory since all schools offer online learning material in English, and that is enough to pass the theoretical exam. However, you must have an English-speaking instructor if you want to pass your practical exam.

There are only a handful of driving schools with English-speaking instructors in Berlin. Many schools claim to offer driving lessons in English while they only offer the online material in English. Make sure you find a school with instructors who speak your language fluently.
