Functions of Driving Schools in Northern Cyprus

Just like anywhere in the world, driving schools aim to teach driving both in practice and in theory.

Theoretical Training

  • Teaching traffic rules, including signs, markings, and basic laws
  • Studying road safety basics and behavior in various road situations
  • Training in first aid in case of road accidents

Practical Driving

  • Learning to drive a car with an instructor in closed areas
  • Learning to drive a car with an instructor in urban conditions
  • Practicing various maneuvers such as parking, U-turns, and reverse driving

But driving schools have another important function: employees register students for the driving test at the Road Transport Department, both for initial driver's license issuance and for exchanging their national licenses for local ones.
