Can I take the driving license tests (theory and practical) in another Canton?

As an international student living in the canton of Vaud, I'd like to get a driving license. However, my French knowledge is not that good to handle the procedure in French. This site says the theory test can be taken in English in some particular cantons. So, as a Vaud resident, can I take the driving license tests (both theory and practical) in another canton in which the test is taken in English?

Thanks in advance for your help!

You can certainly take the theory test in English in another canton (Neuchâtel has English has an option for example) but I am not sure that the practical test is also offered in English anywhere.
That link says that Vaud also offers the theory test in English so why would you need to go to another canton for it?

Yes, you can take the theory test in English in Canton Vaud. To take the practical driving test in another canton you have to get an authorisation from the Vaud SAN, which costs CHF 30.-
If you request this by email (it isn't possible online) mention that you are aware that it costs CHF 30.- Otherwise they will waste time writing back first to check that you know about the charge!
