Mr J. Claivaz taught my wife how to drive in Lausanne. He is fluent in English. You can find more information about his driving school here:

Hope this helps

Re: English Speaking Driving Instructor in Lausanne

Hi

Both my husband and I did a lesson each with Mr Claivaz about 6 years ago when we needed to do the test to convert our licences. I can confirm - He was very good and his English is excellent.

Good Luck
Nats

Re: English Speaking Driving Instructor in Lausanne

OK, sorry to resurrect a really old post, but I searched the forum first and thought it made sense to tag my query onto this one

I'm thinking of taking one or two lessons to familiarise myself with driving in Switzerland - don't need to do this as my license is valid here but think it would be safer for everyone. I'm looking for an English speaking instructor - has anyone any recommendations? The one recommended here is winding down his business according to his website, and is only helping expats get a license which doesn't fit my case.

Re: English Speaking Driving Instructor in Lausanne

Taking a taxi ride might be enough?

Please, please, buy a book about the Swiss driving rules, and understand it.

Re: English Speaking Driving Instructor in Lausanne

Swissdrive.com is now a parked domain, does anyone have a telephone number or another instructor that speaks english.
My wife just needs to get accustomed with driving here learn specific swiss rules as she needs to take a test before she can transfer her license over to a Swiss one.
