Driving School/Lessons near Lausanne/Vevey

Hi all,

We moved here from Asia, 6 months ago and have been driving with our local license. As we need to get our new Swiss driving license i am looking for recommendations on where to go for classes before taking the test. And also if you can share your experience on how the driving test was when you had it taken.

Any advice or recommendation is highly appreciated.

Thank you

Mal

The best thing you can do is to take some lessons with English speaking instructor in the city you are going to pass and let her/him prepare you. These you can find in SAN web-site using search criteria "anglais".

My case was similar - I was passing in Lausanne and I took 3 hours with instructor before doing practical test in SAN.

Keep in mind that if you fail you driving test, you will need to start from scratch and this is a lengthy & costly process.

Also keep in mind that canton VD has the worst passing percentage and the situation apparently is bad in Lausanne. I don't know if this is true, but many people seem to think so when the write stories about SAN Lausanne instructors.

Thank you so much. Yes we do plan to go for lessons before attempting to take the test. If anyone can recommend a driving instructor who speaks English i would appreciate it very much.

Thanks

malmoon09,

In Lausanne I can recommend Olivier Valleret. He speaks decent English and he is a very good instructor. His contact information can be found at http://www.valleret.ch/index.php?p=accueil . It is better to call him rather then using contact form on the web-site because most likely all e-mails from there go to spam.
