Driving test in Zurich

Hi,

Has anyone taking driving test here before? I understand that being a Malaysian, I am required to pass a driving test in order to obtain a Swiss driver's license. I might have to arrange for an appointment soon as I've already been here for 6 months....ggrrrr

Would appreciate some tips from anyone out there. Thanks!

All I know is that some nationalities have to take the test if they want to convert their licence. You can drive for the first year that you are here, so I guess it's a good idea to do so in order to get used to the roads.

Re: Driving test in Zurich

Ya, I have been driving for the past 5 months but it still worries me bout taking driving test. One of my greatest fear, especially when Zurich has such strict regulations and everything is in German.

Just want to know how the test is conducted, how strict the examiner is and etc to better prepare myself so I don't freak out on that day itself...

Re: Driving test in Zurich

There are many English-speaking driving instructors around.
Also Zurich is reputed for being "less strict" according to the instructor I used (who only speaks German/Italian).
