  1. Hello Ted, Test can be held as English. I know this because I'm hearing that Syrians are getting Arabic version of this test.
  2. Unfortunately Ken, who wants to get a new Turkish Driving Licence must register to one of driving course but attendance not necessarily if agreed with the course. Driving test will be held at the same course center where registered.
  3. U.S.licence owners needs to go to driving course and obtain a Turkish driving licence. Simply, after registering there will be a paper-based exam, second driving test with instructors. If passed on two tests you will entitle to get a Turkish driving licence. Req Docs 1. Passport 2. Residence Permit 3. Biometric photograph 4. Degree ( Translated and notary ratified) 5. Health report 6. Criminal record certificate Fees will be around 900 TL in total as I remember correctly.
  4. Hello, I hope this will help you out. Semt: N/A (According to information above) Mahalle: Kumbahçe Cadde/Sokak: 2407 Posta Kodu: 48400 İl: Muğla İlçe: Bodrum
  5. Justin, As far as I know, the first message still applies to all foreigners. I'm working at a company whom my colleagues are foreign citizens are having the same problem and they are enrolling driving courses at least a paper that proves you're going to a course in case of police stop.
  6. There is a rafting area near İstanbul which is Melen run in Düzce. We are planning to go next week since it's our first time I'm wondering about the things we should consider before going there. I made some research about it but I'd like to listen from someone who done it before. Photos will be added after trip. Thank you
  7. If I am correct this certificate is "adli sicil kaydı" which is available on E-Devlet. If you don't have E-Devlet, probably Foreigners Branch may provide this.
  8. I went there couple of months ago, I wanted to have a lunch at moonlight but it was closed, once I have tried there and loved it, it was an unfortunate to see they are all gone.
  9. The main reasons are political unstability( prolong state of emergency), increasing in terrorism and the low rate of production. These causes the uncertainty and market take consideration while pricing the TL. A solution might be balancing our debts, incerasing our export volume and crack down on our public expenditures and making reforms on education but these are for a long-term solutions. I believe it is impossible to predict the fate of TL against U.S Dollar or Euro due to uncertainty.
  10. I've just join the club just for being supportive, I hope it's okay.
  11. We had a business with this real estate agency and personally I can freely recommend it. http://www.eseremlak.com.tr/
  12. What a tragic story, since you are in England I believe the threats he made are just empty words I would say otherwise if you are in Turkey. Anyway, the only solution that I can think of this, go to the page that I have posted below it is a general directorate of securtiy, they have an office in London, or you can use their e-mail address to explain your situation, provide all required information about him (i.d, phone number, his address in Turkey etc.) and show them all e-mails filled with threats even if they were in Turkish they will understand how important it is. I hope you find a swift answer regarding to your problem.
  13. He is right, in the first couple of weeks there are scrutiny for new comers to military and cell phones are not allowed. There are pay phones on the other hand at every barracks but since you are living outside of the country it could be difficult to communicate. For your second question, yes he can able to take furlough up to two weeks. You have to decide the date beforehand and one important issue is that if he is going to east part of the country the leave of absence may differ due to the situations of the country. He will be paid monthly basis ( as I remembered 60 TL monthly) unless he is not a reserve officer then he will get paid like 2,000 Tl every month. I hope he is coming back healthy from military.
  14. Especially with the blackcurrent is delicious. My personal favorite is "kaburga dolması".
  15. Hello welcome to forum, First of all congratulations for your effort to come here and become a useful member for the community, Since you have a dual citizenship which makes you a valuable and reasonable candidate for teaching positions. Beside that, with TESL certificate you can only work in private colleges and language institutions, If you want to work in government institutions you have to take KPSS ( http://www.osym.gov.tr/belge/1-24884/2016-kpss-kamu-personel-secme-sinavi.html) It's not an easy exam and the process of appointment takes time) Wages for teaching positions can differ but generally between 2,000 - 3,000 TL for starters, There are other variables like, staying, food, transportation, clothing and extra costs. I hope your dreams come true.
