Driving lessons close to Geneva (nyon)


I just moved to Switserland 6 weeks ago from Holland.
And in Holland you could get your driving license at a age of 17 (then you were allowed to drive supervised by a person who had its license 10 years or longer, until you were 18)

Is this the same in Switserland? Or do you have to wait with starting your driving lessons until you have reached the age of 18.

Or can you start with driving lessons when you are 17 and pass your theory exams, but do your practical exam when you are 18?

Or is there a possibility to use a Simulator at a age of 17?

I would really like to know!


(sorry if I made a lot of grammar mistakes, because my English is not perfect yet, please correct me! I still have a lot te learn )

Hi Laura!

Welcome to Switzerland!

I am not sure yet about the rules here in CH, but have heard it is possible to learn driving by someone who is experienced. When did they exactly change this rule in The Netherlands? 9 weeks ago it wasn't final yet :-).
