What’s the procedure for getting a Russian license?

In Russia, the law says that you have to go to a driving school, pass their test, receive a confirmation of course completion, go to the “ГИБДД” or road police, and take their test. Some schools will allow you to pay for the courses (usually around 30,000 RUB) and not attend, just take their test, but you still have to wait the two and a half months by law before you can go to the road police to take the test. If you are a foreigner, you need to have residency in order to get a license.
