I had to make my license from scratch, and I am pleased I picked Bruckmaier. The staff was accommodating and spoke excellent English. My driving instructor, Markus, was also excellent. I passed my theory and practical exam on the first go! I will recommend it.
Bruckmaier is my second driving school and it was a good choice: very professional, fast answers and good clarification. Special thanks to my driving instructor Martin, he was really helpful and patient, and he speaks English very well. I totally recommend it.
The staff is very helpful and nice.
When I enroled in this school there was a lady working at the front desk that was able to speak english, but now no one speaks english. Even thought they do not speak english, they were very pacient with me and tried to understand any request I had. So I strongly recommend the school, even if you do not speak german very well.
My instructor was Markus, and he is awesome! He is very polite and pacient. He pays attention to every single action you take during the class and gives very usefull tips.
Since I was not very confident speaking german at the begining of our lessons, we spoke in english and he thought me the comands in german. After some time we switched to german. When I had a hard time understanding something in german, he would stop and explain it in english.
All in all I do recommend the school, they are very honest, they do not try in any way to fool you around. On the contrary, they are very straight forward and tell from the begining the costs for everything and explain how many lessons they recommend you to take before the exam.
Big thanks for everybody involved in helping me converting my brazilian driver's license to a german one!!!!
Great experience with Fahrschule Bruckmaier. Everything was clear since the beginning. Christine was my main point of contact, she was always really nice and helpful. Grigory was a great driving instructor. Will recommend getting your DL with them!
I am completely satisfied with that school. As I didn't speak german enough well I had english and russian-speaking teachers. Everyone were very friendly and supportive, so I passed the exams succesfully.
I gave this driving school 3 star for the friendly and warm-hearted staffs in the office. For who can speak German fluently , I think I can recommend this school, because you can choose different instructors. But for someone who only can speak English, I advise you to consider about other school.
I choose to change to another driving school two weeks ago and then found a lot of things I learned before were wrong or didn't understand their principles. (For example, when turning left under traffic lights, I only know you should look right and left, but I don't know exactly what I should pay attention to. And when changing to left lane, my instructor told me you only need to have a glimpse on your left side, but my new instructor told me that was totally wrong, if you do so in the practical exam, you will immediately fail.And I checked so many sharing experience, they all said I need to look after shoulder ) Before that I took 12 driving courses in this school and wasted about 1200 Euro on useless classes. I am really angry about this.
I think you, who can only speak English, can choose this driving school if you are an experienced driver or thoroughly know German rules.
Tolles Team, sehr nett und hilfsbereit.
Vor allem bedanke ich mich herzlich bei meinem Fahrlehrer Gregor.
Er hat mir das Gefühl von Sicherheit am Steuer vermittelt und ist individuell auf meine Schwächen eingegangen, daher war er sehr kompetent und stets freundlich.
Vielen Dank Gregor für deine Geduld und Verständnis mit mir.
After I passed my driving exam I feel obliged to leave a review for these guys.
As a reviewer before me posted already. They are not the cheapest driving school in town, but when you are looking at some 3k euros for a driving license... What difference does a few hundres bucks make?
I took my car license with another driving school in Munich about three years ago and so I feel I can farely compare both experinces.
The ladies at the office are extremely helpful and know their stuff inside out. As a foreigner, navigating german bureocracy can be a pain. The three ladies I dealt with on the past few months made it incredible easy. Little details like sending you a whatsapp to remind you to not forget this document or that payment make all the difference in the world.
The theory classes ( although annoying as all theory lessons are) where tought by instructors who actually cared about what they do. They all covered a somewhat annoying material in a way which was at least, entertaining and easy to understand. The school always provided pizza and soft drinks on the breaks. A slice and a glass of soda was a nice touch.
I took the Motorcycle license, and my instructor, Frank, although demanding and quite direct, knows his stuff inside out.
He made sure I drove the hours I need to pass my test. Not more, not less. He payed atention to every little detail and hammered me on my mistakes until things started flowing. From the angle of my elbows to how my fingers rested on the throttle. Frank was always on point.
I was quite tense today before my exam but I knew it was up to me following the rules. There was no angle Frank didnt cover or no lesson he didnt go through.
The bikes were nicely taken care of. Always clean, always ready to go.
They are aware that the license is expensive enough as it is and so they provide with all the gear you need at no cost during your training so you dont need to go completely broke by paying for the school, the exams and a bunch of gear.
I can fully recommend them and although I cant speak badly of my previous school, these guys are in my opinion much, much better.
Good luck and have fun!
Empfehle jedem die Fahrschule Bruckmaier!
Gregor ist ein TOP Fahrlehrer. Ich hatte drei Fahrlehrer, also kann ich definitiv sagen, dass Gregor sehr professionell und der Beste ist. Dieser Beruf ist absolut seine Leidenschaft. Er ist sehr nett, hat sehr gute Herangehensweise an den Schüler. Er ist Schüler gegenüber sehr fürsorglich. Er erklärt geduldig alles was in d. Moment wichtig ist und beantwortet geduldig alles was du ihm fragst. Bei ihm fühlt man sich sicher. Er hat mir sehr gut geholfen bei d. Prüfungsvorbereitung obwohl hat dafür nur 1 Woche gehabt. Herzlichen Dank Gregor! …absolut empfehlenswert ?
The best driving school in town (Klasse A unbeschränkt)
Dear Reader, are you about to take your driving license? Not sure which driving school to choose in Munich?
Allow me to let you know why I choose Bruckmaier and why I am super happy with my decision.
Bruckmaier is probably not the cheapest deal in Munich. There are other driving schools fighting over the last cents in town.
For me personally, I wanted to visit a driving school where I felt well taken care of, the theory units where flexible (but still to be done at a fast pace), the bikes being modern and a driving instructor that is pleasant, "thinks one step ahead" and tailors the lessons based on my skills.
This all is a true fact at Bruckmaier (Trappentreustr.)
The lovely ladies at the reception always take their time to help any way they can. For example, I was set to have my theory test at TÜV Süd, mid August. Victoria proactively found a spot by the end of July. She sent me a message and thereafter booked me for the exam, about a week after I was done with the theory app. Slick!
Willi was my driving teacher. Fun, smart and prepared me the best way possible for my driving exam. I had the 12 pflichtstunden and another hour before the exam. Just to get warmed up. The driving exam itself was a dream! Since we've gone through many various traffic scenarios, practicing emergency braking, the various slaloms etc I felt confident the day I was having my driving exam.
And yes, it all went well - thanks to Fahrschule Bruckmaier.
Stop wasting your time reading the comments - sign up and get on the road!
Super friendly and helpful; modern well maintained motorbikes and good instructors.
