For a small fee we take care of the registration for a first aid course held in English (or one of the other mentioned languages) and save you the calling around to set it up.

Driving Schools offering schooling in English

Do you need driving lessons? If you believe you don't, it is still worthwhile to take at least one lesson to get insight into the test requirements. There are various driving schools in Hamburg and some of them also offer the training in English. The underneath schools are just examples.

Contracting Support Driving School

Driving Schools all have slightly different prcie models. We find out the overall prices and conditions, arrange the first appointment and communicate with the school in case of problems.
