Missed the 6 months period of the first further educational course..

Dear all,

I got my Swiss probationary license on July 31 2014 (after a lot of practice!)
And then I moved to another country and did not get time to come back to Switzerland.

Now I notice that I missed the 6 months period for the first further educational course....
Does anyone have this experience and any suggestions?

Thanks!

Talk to your driving school, they will know if you can do something, especially as you can prove you were abroad, and could not do a course here.

Thanks!

I didn't really attend a driving school... Just an old gentleman who practices together with me.
Do you think if it is possible to directly contact Strassenverkehrsamtdes Kantons Zürich and get it arranged myself?

Re: Missed the 6 months period of the first further educational course..

This 6 month thing is a recommendation.

I did it within 6 months, as suggested; most of the group (all about 20-21) in the class of my first course had only a few months left to get through both courses. One of them had to do both courses within a week.

The OP refers to WAB-1 and WAB-2 courses. They are compulsory for new drivers or have probationary license. AFAIK, they must be taken before the license expires.

Re: Missed the 6 months period of the first further educational course..

If the OP refers to WAB1 and WAB2, AFAIK, these courses can be taken up to 3 years from when your probationary license was issued. If you look at your probationary license, there is written there the "end date" off this license, so you must complete both WAB course before this date.
