Re: theory exam in english for DL in Bern?

Hi! Why should the exam being offered in English? The applicable law is not officially written in that language.

The website is available only in German or French, not even Italian which is an official Swiss language: https://www.svsa.pom.be.ch/svsa_pom/...is-machen.html so I assume DE and FR are the only examination languages.

You assume wrong. Several cantons offer the option of taking the driving theory exam in English and Bern is one of them.

The OP needs to ask the test centre in Bern about it.

Edit to add: the learning material for the driving theory is provided in French, German, Italian and English .

I did mine in Austria where the options were German, English, Croatian and Slovenian. I wouldn't be suprised to see English here.

For Bern, google says yes to English.
