In order to get your Israel driving license you are required to take an eye test, pass a theoretical test for your learner’s driving permit, take a number of driving lessons with a qualified and accredited driving instructor and then pass the practical driving test. The number of driving lessons you are required to take, depends on the type of license you are applying for and the vehicle you will be driving.
