driving licence

I am a student at the Uni of Bern and I want to apply for a driving licence soon, need some help...

1) what are the steps involved in getting a driver's licence in Switzerland for International students? how many and what sort of tests are involved.. (I have heard that rules are different for students if they apply within a year after moving to Switzerland?! what if I apply next year? )

2) Is it easier to convert an International Driving licence to a Swiss one rather applying for a fresh one here?

3) Is there any chance I can give the tests in English in Bern?

Many thanks!

Re: driving licence

Depends which countries driving licence you hold at the moment... some will be a straight swap, eg Uk otherwise you need to do a test - eg for an african licence

an international driving licence is actually meaningless as its just a compliment to your real driving licence.

You have as much chance of getting a test in English as a snowball does of survival in hell!!
