Goethe vs. TELC exam for C Permit

Does anyone know if the language exam for the C Permit (in Canton Zurich) can be a TELC exam??

I know they say Goethe is accepted. But does anyone know someone who took the TELC & had it accepted for a C Permit?

The gov is pretty fussy so wondering if they prefer one exam over the other. Thanks!

They do accept TELC certificates too (they did accept those for me in January this year) as both TELC and Goethe are the officially accepted German language certificates for C-Permit.

Which level of Goethe Zertifikat is required for that? As far as I know, Germany requires at least Level B1. Is it the same case in Switzerland?

Re: Goethe vs. TELC exam for C Permit

Sorry to revive an old thread, however I was told that the TELC is slightly easier than Goethe Institut for the C exam. Is there any validity to this?

Next year I'm thinking of applying for my C permit.

The practice tests for both are also available online, if you want to have a run through.
