A driving license (permis B) is intended anyone over 18 years of age who wishes to drive a car or a trike with a total weight not exceeding 3500 kg and whose seating capacity, excluding the driver, doesn’t exceed 8.

6 steps are required to fully validate your driver’s license:

1

Pick up your application for a student driver’s license in our office. We will help you to fill it out correctly.  You can also download it HERE  and print your application for a Student Driver’s License.

2

Complete your first aid course. This 10-hours course is done on our premises by our partner Firstmed every Friday and Saturday.  Be sure to register now !

3

The next step is the theory, either at our school or at home.

Student driver’s licence

Upon passing your theoretical exam, you will receive a Class B student driver’s license. Valid for 2 years, this license allows you to perfect your driving skills with your driving instructor of West Lausanne.

Once you’ve passed the theory exam, you must complete the Sensibilisation courses.

5

At the same time, you can start driving lessons with your qualified instructor in Renens. Don’t forget that good training is a guarantee of safety and success (See EPS Guidelines for Driving Students).

Finally, you reach the finish line: the driving test. In agreement with your driving instructor, a date is set for the exam. It is strongly advised to take the exam once you have both agreed that you have a satisfactory level to succeed on your first attempt.
