I haven’t post much recently, as I am mentally preparing myself to do my driving license in Slovenia…
For those who knows me, in Canada, I did my driving class but only with automatic car… well, here in Slovenia, they don’t even have that option, so every class will be with a manual car… I don’t have enough words to express my worries… LOL 😥
If like me, you didn’t have your driving license before, you will need to redo from the start:
- Do a Health Checkup at a clinic (40,00€ – prices might vary),
- Attend a First Aid class and pass the Exam in Slovene (80,00€),
- Enroll in a Driving School for a 20 school hours (45 mins = 1 school hour) theory class (50,00€), get your proof booklet that you attended (10,00€) and pass the Written Exam (in Slovene) on a computer program,
- Enroll in a Driving School for the practical driving hours (50 mins each) with an instructor until you’ve completed all the required driving situations (i.e. parking, driving on the highways, driving for 2 hours straight, driving in the evening…), then what’s left is
- Passing the Practical Exam (in Slovene) which is 3 parts: preparation for driving, driving in an empty zone then driving in the traffic.
I have just passed my First Aid in Slovene, it was a good revision of things that I already knew. I think that getting a Driving License might be harder in Slovenia, judging by the required driving situation such as driving for 2 hours straight and in the dark… (that got me a bit worried…) – I don’t remember having those in Canada (correct me if I’m wrong).
You can practice the Written Exam in Slovene on Učenje na Spletu – Varno v Prometu.
Anyways, it is a good start and I will see how it goes when I will be enrolled in a Driving School. The instructors must be very competent 😉 and I’m not a big fan of driving, so completing my Driving License will take all my determination and will.
Please cheer for me when the time comes!
Until next time,

I’m ready to start getting the driving license in Slovenia and I wanted to ask you how did you manage the language barrier?
Did you speak Slovene before?
I know the theory test can be in English but how about the practical?
Hey Oliver, shame on me… I got pregnant meanwhile and I haven’t finished the process of getting my driving license yet.
I did speak some Slovene before.
