Finished the grundkurs for A1 now what

I already have the B auto license so I didn't take the theory test , I understood that they give you another year added to learn so you can take the practical test
Do I have to do a practical test for A1 or not in this year that they gave me, thank you

As you already have B all you have to do is to send in the learners permit with the Grundkurs stamp and your current license to get A1 added to it.


Have a save ride.

Age is not relevant. As long as you have B or B1 you get A1 with the mandatory basic training only w/o a practical exam. (Do not know anyone who has B1 alone).

Art. 22 Abs. 3 lit. a VZV
https://www.admin.ch/opc/de/classifi...index.html#a22

One can even do the mandatory basic training first and then do the B exam afterwards.

Never. Has been like this since April 1st 2003. https://www.admin.ch/opc/de/classifi...000/741.51.pdf
Before that date anyone wich wanted to get A1 had to pass the practical exam. Back in that days to get A you needed to have A1 for at least two years. The mandatory basic training was introduced 1991. (Disclaimer: Before 1976 other rules applied)

April 1st 2003 is the date when the system changed from A1 / A to A1 / A (25 kW)/ A and was also when the blue paper permit was replaced with the credit card sized version. All those who have A1 on the blue paper license will get A (35 kW) on the credit card license.
