English term or phrase: Facing the real challenge of driving
I know that challenge means "wyzwanie" in Polish but it sounds very stilted and pretentious used in this context. Probowalam "W obliczu prawdziwych zawilosci jazdy samochodem" but it is not quite it. HELP!

...jazda samochodem to prawdziwa próba sił...
Explanation:
Yes, WYZWANIE in Polish is not as universal as in English.

English thesaurus might help:
CHALLENGE = confrontation, dare, defiance, interrogation, provocation, question, summons to contest, test, trial, ultimatum

TRIAL = PRÓBA (SIŁ)
CONFRONTATION = KONFRONTACJA
are the two that would be suitable for your context, Eva.

stojąc w obliczu prawdziwej próby sił, jaką jest jazda samochodem...

stojąc w obliczu prawdziwej konfrontacji, jaką jest jazda samochodem...

Hope it helps, Eva.

Thank you for your kind assistance. The word challenge comes up in my translations all the time, I am yet to find a truly suitable equivalent. Your suggestions were very helpful in this instance, though. Some other ideas I have come up with are: Przezwyciezanie trudnosci zwiazanych z jazda and Stawianie czola dylematom jazdy.

Thanks again.
