Driving Lessons

Does anybody know about taking driving lessons with an English speaking instructor on the island?

If you go towards Deokpo from Okpo, pass the new park at the top of the hill, as you go down the hill towards Deokpo beach take the 3rd right turn on the hill, (the turn before the golf course) take that road and it leads you to a driving school, they have some English speakers and will pick you up from your appartment once you are signed up for the course.

I like how you gave driving instructions to the driving school. Of course I'm assuming they don't know how to drive at all.

I taught my wife how to drive. I will be available if you want. I live in Okpo and can come to you. Let me know. 010-4906-1478 or

The deokpo driving school didnt have an English instructor last time I checked (maybe 3-4 months ago). Last guy retired and they never replaced him, although thats not to say they have one now).

There is one in Gohyeong, but its a bit complicated for directions to get to. They definetly have an English speaking instructor, and the guy at reception speaks a bit of English as well, he can take you through the application process (think it costs around 1million in total).

If you need anymore info, contact me throught the email address.

My wife did her driving test there a few months ago and passed. She didn't use an English speaking instructor and speaks no Korean herself.
I downloaded stuff of the internet for the theory part and obtained a CD in English with the questions on it. This was enough to pass the theory computer test. After that it is a question of driving the course - which is just down to common sense in any language.

I believe in June / July they did change the test - apparently made it even easier.
