O.P. RE: Driving Test [Now Passed :D]
My lessons were 19 each. Quite cheap.
I booked a 2 courses of ten, then two solo lessons before my test.

But yeah it is expensive, the tests alone are expensive. Theory was just under 30, practical was about 56 I think.

But it pays off in the end :)

19? So its not that bad then... I was getting told it would cost 40+ for each lesson. :/

Edit: BSM charge 27 per hour in my area, better start saving more. :sad:

To get a license in Finland you have to pay 1200 (just under 1100, or almost 1600$)(depends a bit on the school). If you fail your first test you have to pay extra, as you have to take additional courses every time you fail. Carrying over my "us vs them" car culture conversation from IRC to the forums it seems :P

EDIT: Forgot to include other fees, which was not listed in the price (because you can get those from other places than the school)... 60 for health check, pass photos and permission to get license, 45 to drive on the winter handling course, 49 for the exams, 25 for the actual license card and 60 for dark driving course. Totals at 1439.

if you can afford it, BSM will offer a 2 an hour discount if you book 26+ hours of lessons in one go...the discount then also applies to any further lessons booked

My first instructor was 15 an hour for the first 10 then 18 for 10 after that, so pretty good. But, I couldn't get used to the car, so I'm now with a new instructor and he's also 19 per hour for 10.

Done just over 30 hours now, but I still need a lot of practice before I'm ready. Paid 510 already. Luckily I have some more savings.

No idea how I'm going to afford a car (~1,000) and insurance (~2,000).
