Traffic Violation vs Naturalozation (or Permit C)

Hey guys
I have a question

In case someone with Permit B, aspiring for a Permit C (or a passport), subject to major problems in case he has had a traffic violation (a major one where he or she had the license invoked)

in other words, is a major traffic violation seen as a major detterent by the auhtorities who approve the Permits/Citizenship

thanks

Kevin

Re: Traffic Violation vs Naturalozation (or Permit C)

depends what the slip-up was for the loss of license. Also depends on the citizenship of the person (no doubt) and other problems he or she has caused.

And C permit is rather different to naturalisation so do be more specific. In every detail.

Re: Traffic Violation vs Naturalization (or Permit C)

hi lob
tks for your reply

the slip up was crossing speed limit (110 instead of 80) , and my question was generally in regards the authorities' attitude towards such a situation. I might be applying for a Permit C next year and was wondering whether this 'slip-up' may have an impact on it. And if not, can it have an impact during the citizenship application process (whenever it takes place)

thanks again for responding

kevin

If you got a criminal conviction for it ("Eintrag im Strafregister"), that may be a problem. The criminal record is most definitely checked during the naturalization process (heck, sometimes you even need to send in an extract from police records if you apply for an apartment...). Speeding isn't considered a serious violation, though (as long as no alcohol was involved) so I guess it's up to the guy who processes your application.

I know someone who had a conviction for speeding then got his C permit with no problems.

Judging by the posts I read after each 'meeting for drinks' at the Valley field (this is the ENGLISH Forum!) - perhaps anyone hoping to become a Swiss National in the next thirty years should avoid the place like the plague, or, of course, go by public transport.
