Autofahren ab 17 Jahren

Wer den Lernfahrausweis vor dem 20. Altersjahr erwirbt, muss inskünftig eine Lernphase von 12 Monaten durchlaufen bevor die praktische Führerprüfung abgeschlossen werden kann. Der Bundesrat verspricht sich davon mehr Verkehrssicherheit: Je mehr Fahrten in Begleitung stattfinden, umso mehr reduziert sich das Unfallrisiko.

Da das Mindestalter für den Erwerb des Führerausweises für Personenwagen nicht angehoben werden soll, kann ab dem 1. Januar 2021 der Lernfahrausweis bereits im Alter von 17 Jahren erteilt werden. Dann können 17-Jährige Lernfahrten mit Personenwagen machen, um länger begleitet Fahrerfahrung zu sammeln. Für Personen, die den Lernfahrausweis nach dem 20. Altersjahr erwerben erfolgt keine Veränderung. Nachfolgend finden Sie die Übergangsbestimmungen zu dieser Neuregelung:

Personen mit Jahrgang 2002:
Sie können den Lernfahrausweis der Kategorie B (Personenwagen) ab ihrem 18. Geburtstag erhalten. Wenn Sie den Lernfahrausweis noch im Jahr 2020 erwerben (Voraussetzung bestandene Basistheorieprüfung), können sie im Jahr 2021 jederzeit an die praktische Führerprüfung ohne Abwarten einer Lernphase. (Massgebend ist Art. 151I Absatz 1 VZV, der am 1. Januar 2021 in Kraft tritt) Die Prüfung der Basistheorie kann frühestens einen Monat vor dem 18. Geburtstag abgelegt werden. (VZV Art. 13 Abs. 1bis)

Personen mit Jahrgang 2003:
Jugendliche mit Jahrgang 2003 können den Lernfahrausweis der Kategorie B ab dem 1. Januar 2021 mit 17 Jahren erhalten. Voraussetzung dafür ist, dass sie die Prüfung der Basistheorie bestanden haben.
(Diese Prüfung können sie frühestens im Dezember 2020 ablegen sofern sie zwischen dem 01.01.2003 – 28.02.2003 geboren wurden. Personen, welche nach dem 01.03.2003 geboren wurden, können ab dem 15.12.2020 das Gesuch einreichen und im Januar die Basistheorieprüfung absolvieren.)
Sollten Sie den Lernfahrausweis im Jahr 2021 erwerben, müssen sie ihn nicht mindestens 12 Monate besitzen, um zur praktischen Führerprüfung zugelassen zu werden. Die praktische Führerprüfung dürfen Sie direkt nach Ihrem 18. Geburtstag ablegen. Sofern Sie aber den Lernfahrausweis erst 2022 oder später erwerben, muss die zwölfmonatige Lernphase durchlaufen werden.

Übergangsrecht:
Jahrgang 2002
- fahren ab 17 Jahren nicht möglich
- können ab 18 Jahren den Lernfahrausweis erwerben
- LFA vor 1.1.2021 = keine obligatorische Lernphase von 12 Mt.
- LFA ab 1.1.2021 = obligatorische Lernphase von 12 Mt.

Jahrgang 2003
- fahren ab 17 Jahren möglich
- können ab 1.1.2021 den Lernfahrausweis erwerben
- LFA vor 1.1.2022 = keine obligatorische Lernphase von 12 Mt.
- LFA ab 1.1.2022 = obligatorische Lernphase von 12 Mt.

NEUES GESETZ
Jahrgang 2004
- fahren ab 17 Jahren möglich
- durchlaufen die obligatorische Lernphase von 12 Mt.


Evaluation der neuen Regelung:
Der Bundesrat hat das Eidgenössische Departement für Umwelt, Verkehr, Energie und Kommunikation (UVEK) beauftragt, spätestens drei Jahre nach Inkrafttreten dieser neuen Regelung ihre Auswirkungen zu evaluieren und anschliessend einen Bericht über die Ergebnisse der Evaluation zu veröffentlichen sowie ihm einen Antrag für das weitere Vorgehen zu stellen.

Empfehlung:
Wir empfehlen Ihnen zu Beginn Ihrer Fahrausbildung eine professionelle Grundausbildung in einer Fahrschule zu absolvieren, um Know-how sowie Fahrpraxis zu erlangen.

Federal Council approves new traffic rules and signalling regulations

Bern, 20.05.2020 - At its meeting on 20 May 2020, the Federal Council adopted the revised traffic regulations and signalling ordinances. These changes affect various areas. On motorways, for example, the obligation to form an escape route will in future apply in the event of traffic jams, and the zipper principle will apply in the event of lane reductions. In slow-moving traffic, children under 12 years of age will in future be allowed to ride on the pavement if there is no cycle path or cycle lane. The Federal Council has put the changes into force on 1 January 2021.

The amendments to the ordinances serve to improve traffic flow and road safety. The Federal Council is thus also fulfilling parliamentary requirements.

The most important changes at a glance:

Measures in rolling traffic

If a lane has to be removed on a motorway, the zipper principle now applies. Motorists must allow vehicles to enter the removed lane. This is to prevent drivers from changing to the remaining lane too early when lanes are removed, as is often the case today. This allows traffic to flow better. Failure to observe the zipper principle is punishable by an orderly bus.

In addition, in future it will be compulsory to form an escape route: In the event of a traffic jam, motorists must leave enough space for rescue vehicles between the left and right lanes - in the case of three-lane roads between the left and the two right lanes - without occupying the breakdown lane. Failure to keep to the emergency lane is punishable by an orderly bus.

Measures in favour of slow-moving traffic

Cyclists and moped riders will now be allowed to turn right at red lights, provided this is indicated accordingly. A further change concerns the use of the pavement for children with bicycles. Today only kindergarten teachers are allowed to do this. In future, children up to 12 years of age will be allowed to use the pavement by bicycle - but only if there is no cycle path or cycle lane. The Federal Council is aware that this can disturb pedestrians on the sidewalks. However, the new regulation helps to prevent accidents involving children with cars and thus serves to improve road safety.

Another change will make it possible in future to mark an area for cyclists in front of traffic lights, even if there is no cycle lane. In addition, a diversion signposting system will be introduced for slow-moving traffic.

Measures for stationary traffic

For stationary traffic, the symbol "charging station" is now created. This can be used to designate parking areas that have a charging station for electric vehicles. Parking areas with charging stations for electric vehicles can now be coloured green. This is in line with a request of the Parliament (motion of the Green Liberal Group "Green Zones for Electric Vehicles", 17.4040) and should make it easier to find charging stations.

Marked parking areas can now be reserved for bicycles with a cycle pictogram, without the need for additional signalling as before.

The scope of the "Parking for a fee" signal is extended to all vehicles. This means that fee-paying parking areas can also be introduced for motorcycles, mopeds and fast e-bikes.

Entry into force

The amendments to the ordinance come into force on 1 January 2021. Some of them will be concretized in VSS standards.

Further changes as of 1 January 2021

In the National Roads Ordinance, the Federal Council has lifted the ban on serving and selling alcohol at motorway service stations. In doing so, it is fulfilling a motion of the National Council's Transport Commission (17.3267).

In addition, relief is introduced for certain heavy motor vehicles (over 3500 kilograms total weight): Blood donation services will be exempted from the ban on driving on Sundays and at night and veteran vehicles will be exempted from the ban on driving on Sundays.

The maximum permitted speed of light motor vehicles with trailers of up to 3.5 tonnes is increased from 80 km/h to 100 km/h, provided that the trailer and towing vehicle are approved for this speed.


An adaptation of DETEC's ordinance on the 30 km/h zones and meeting zones will create a further possibility to deviate from the principle of legal precedence in 30 km/h zones by way of exception. In future it will be possible to set up priority cycle lanes in these zones. A special "cycle route" signal will not be required, but the cycle route can be marked by means of a large bicycle pictogram.

DETEC's instructions on special markings on the roadway will be supplemented by a marking that can indicate the tram in pedestrian lanes. A trial carried out together with affected cities has shown that this measure has a positive effect on road safety. The above-mentioned directives also provide for the possibility of marking suitable pedestrian crossing points with "Füessli". This marking will be applied on the pavement and is to be used, for example, in 30 km/h zones, as pedestrian crossings may only be marked in exceptional cases.

Cars: category B

Our driving instructors provide you with safe and competent guidance for your practical driving test. After you have passed the test, we provide the mandatory 2-phase advanced training courses for new drivers. Contact one of our driving instructors in the «team» section and book your first driving lesson.

Cars with a trailer: category BE

Since 1 April 2003, authorisation to drive a category-B vehicle (minibuses and cars) while towing a trailer has no longer been automatically incorporated into the driving license. This means that a separate car trailer test must be taken in order to obtain the relevant authorisation. Feedback from our customers has shown that many motorists are not aware of this requirement. Driving a vehicle while towing a trailer without having obtained the relevant driving license category constitutes the offence of “driving without a valid diving license” as stipulated in the Road Traffic Act SVG Art. 95 and is subject to prosecution.

In the event of an accident, the insurance company may even deny coverage. If you or your employees need to drive vehicles towing a trailer, you can easily ascertain if you or they have the relevant authorisation. The credit-card format driving licenses must indicate category B/E while the old blue driving licenses must indicate category E. If either you or your employees do not have the authorisation to drive while towing a trailer, we will be happy to provide you with the necessary training.
