Re: Motorbike/Motorcycle: Learning/Taking the test with(out) car license?

Hello,

I think I have been a bit foolish and wondered if anyone had some advice.

I had an A provisional A license in October 2016 which i thought would be valid for 24 months as it is in the UK (I'm British) but did not realise the 4 month expiry time.

I did not ride at all from October - January (as to be expected in hindsight) and then got a second provisional A license in spring 2017, which has about 2 weeks left to run.

My instructor cannot fit me in for a full Grundcourse before my licence expires. I am now worried that I will be in a position where I have used up both my shots at driving motorbikes in switzerland, and I also now own a motorbike.

My question is, how strictly is the maximum 2 X Provisional License rule enforced?

many thanks,

Do what my daughter did for a year or two, and ride with no license.

Strictly. They are quite sticklers. You can get around it when you do a psychological assessment. Cost is around CHF 500.

But who cares about your driving instructor. There are many offering such courses and you can do it anywhere. You can each course at a different instructor.
