DAKAR, driving school offers driving tuition and assistance to foreigners, in English or Polish, conveniently located in a city centre location at Rondo Mogilskie/Lubicz, next door to Kraków Opera.
Kraków is a perfect place to learn how to drive. Although it has many strange intersections and roundabouts it is not so difficult to deal with as there are only a few rules every driver should remember, and that there are basically only two types of turns and three types of junctions/intersections.
We know that having mastered that knowledge, you will drive confidently and safely in each and every country. This is the kind of knowledge we aim to pass on to our learner drivers. At the same time, we ensure comfortable and friendly teaching conditions, while minimising stress.
Even if you are a person whose driving experience is limited to driving only a shopping trolley, you will see that driving with style and confidence is not a huge challenge at all.
Being located in Cracow, we prepare our learners for a driving exam in this city. Passing the national exam on the first try is not so difficult. Thanks to our experience, you will take the exam with confidence, a cool-head, and the knowledge of all possible places and tricky exam spots.
We focus on these two aspects: driving well and thorough preparation for the national exam.
