Driving license and driving practice info

Hello Ladies and Gentelmen,

I'm learningn to drive and I thought it could be helpful to give a bit of info about the process.

-First I did the Nothelfer Kurs, in english in sanarena, you only have to assist the two days and they will give to you the certificate.
-Then the eye test (I just search the closest place near my home and asked if it was valid for the driving license)
-Then I bought the fuhrerschein cd and studied the content for about 3 months (no rush) when I saw that I was doing 97% questions correct I did the test (in english).
You can choose the language of the test when you start the test, but the reservation process for the date and the papers are the same if you are doing it in english german or another language.
-Less than a week later I received my temporary student driving license and started practising.

The first hours I practised at a company's parking lot (I don't know if it's allowed because I dont work for that company but I went always after 7p.m. an it was almost always empty) The coordinates of the parking lot are: 47.339889, 8.517879 (you can just search them in google maps)
When I could break, use the gear and felt a bit more confident I went to a place near my work (47.359188, 7.970602) there you have long roads without interceptions To be more specific Industriestrasse -> Güterstrasse -> Aarefelstrasse (you can do a circle with this tree streets)
Now I'm practising again in zurich in Birmensdorf (not a lot of traffic)
Oh and by the way, I'm practising with my husband, when he considers I'm driving perfectly, I'll do the verkehrskundekurs and then a couple of hours with a professional just to be sure and then the test.

Lets see how it goes (sorry for the bad english)
