Where to find a car tutor

I am thinking about getting a drivers license. And an agency, through which I tried to register informed me, it would cost around 90CHF for one hour while being trained/supervised by a someone skilled. Or the alternative was to find somewhere, a person willing to scale-down the price.

So, I was thinking where I might be able to find a person willing to teach me for less than 90CHF?

Details: I don't have a car, I did learn how to drive once. So, I am not 100% beginner.

Re: Where to find a car tutor

Get a learner's licence, rent a mobility car and then ask a friend/colleague (with licence) to sit next to you whilst you practice. If you can't find anyone willing to do it, you can always pay someone. You will of course need lessons to prepare for the test, but if you supplement it with the above you should get to your goal quicker and for a lot less money.

Thanks for the informative answer. I don't understand though, what/where is/I can get a learner's license?

Plus, is a mobility car, a special type of car, or just about any car that I am able to rent? Do I ask for a mobility car, when renting?

Re: Where to find a car tutor

You go to the Centre des automobiles in Blecherette, or on their website, and you'll learn all about the Permis d'élève conducteur and the necessary classes you have to take (and pay for!).

Getting a driving license in CH is an expensive process.

Re: Where to find a car tutor

One more point, when you practice with a learner license, the tutor next to you must have a valid license with over 3 (or 5, not sure) years' driving experience...
I will recommend the cars from mobility.ch , they are cheaper than a driving teacher.
