overall cost depends on many variables. You need to pay for a Learner's permit
(approx. €23.50) and theory test (€30.25) as well as for driving insurance while
learning. Motoring schools usually charge per hour for the driving lessons, and
it depends on you, how long it will take you to get ready for the test. If you
would like to have an estimate it is best if you call several motoring schools and
request a quote from each one of them.
