You should know that the process is quite long - you will not be able to get a license in one week. In fact, it will probably take you a minimum of three months start to finish (and that is if you work super hard for those three months). If it is your fist license, it is more likely to take you closer to 6 months to get it.

You need to take both a theory test (multiple choice with slides) and a practical (driving) test. Most schools will not sign you up for the written test until you consistently miss less than 5 on the practice exams. Once you pass the theory exam (many people do not pass the first time, so if you are in a rush...study hard to make sure you pass the first time!), you can start the driving lessons.

If this is your first driving license, you will most likely do a minimum of 20 hours of driving lessons before they will even consider putting your name forth to take the driving exam.

To help you prepare, you can buy the "Code de la Route" at the main grocery stores and the school can sell you a DVD to practice at home. However, for the theory test, nothing beats going through hundreds of practice slides (normally at your driving school).

Good luck and best wishes!
