At fahrstiL Driving School, we place the utmost importance on optimally preparing you for your control drive. A control drive serves to thoroughly examine your knowledge of traffic rules, your vehicle control, and your ability to navigate safely in traffic. This important check is conducted in the presence of a qualified traffic expert from the Road Traffic Authority and takes place in real traffic. The goal is, among other things, to verify whether holders of foreign driver's licenses can easily exchange them for a Swiss driver's license.

Negative Control Drive

Should participation in the control drive be missed without a valid reason or the control drive not passed, the driver's license will be revoked or the exchange of a foreign driver's license denied. According to legal regulations, there is no possibility to retake the control drive. Those who still wish to renew their driver's license must take the regular route by applying for a learner's permit.
