Price Increases at Driving Schools Puts License at HUF 600,000
Due to the amendments to the Motor Vehicle Act, which came into effect on September 1, there has been a significant price increase in driving schools, meaning students will have to pay an average of up to HUF 600,000, according to business daily Világgazdaság.
The number of students is decreasing, and the instructors are trying to draw attention to the trend with demonstrations.
However, according to the government's decree, support can be requested through the Hungarian State Treasury for the fee of the KRESZ exam, a precondition to taking the test for a category B road driver's license, as well as the related course for up to a maximum value of HUF 25,000.
The condition for eligibility is that on the day of the KRESZ exam, the student has not yet turned 20 or has passed 20 but is receiving infant care, child care fees, or child care support benefits.
