7 quick driving license questions

Many threads like this already, I know. But I've been searching the forum for quite some time and can't find answers to my questions.

I live outside Basel. I have done my first aid course, and today I did my theory test, which I passed! 5 penalty points (max 14) which isn't too bad, so I'm super happy! Alright, to the questions.

1. When and how will I receive my learner's permit?

2. After I received it, will I be able to start having private lessons, with for example my father? If yes, can I then just attach the "L" to the car and start driving (or is something else required before)?

3. Where can I get the "L" sticker?

4. Can I also have private driving lessons with my boyfriend? (19 years old, had his license for 1 year, has his own car).

5. I live in Basel, very close to the border of both France and Germany. Am I allowed to enter these countries on my learner's permit?

6. The only things left before I obtain my real license: driving lessons, Verkehrskunde and passed driving test. Is this correct?

7. Am I allowed to drive with a Swiss driver's license in Sweden?

Thanks a lot in advance!!

Re: 7 quick driving license questions

One week.
Yes, Daddy should be ok.
A garage.
No.
No, you cannot drive abroad.
Sounds right.
Full licence maybe with some other requirement especially if renting a car.

Yes. You may drive on the autobahn as part of your test.

Sorry I didn't know it is a crime (?) I thought it would be better to ask in one of the treads than to start another one. If someone answered this question for me that would be it and I don't think I steal any threads by adding this question. I search the EF and did not find it but as you wish...
Mods, you can delete my question if you think it shouldn't be there.
Some people are mad here. I wonder if you are so brave face to face? I doubt it.

To my knowledge there is no English drivers exams. in Switzerland. Study all the questions and the correct answers only in German and take the test, the right answers will look right to you. Wrong ones you never saw, so it's easy.
