Christine Timmer Driving School


2 nd November, 2020

The current partial lockdown in Germany for November does not apply to driving schools: Driving lessons and tests take place as arranged. Of course we have to observe the general regulations: social distancing, washing hands, face and nose  masks (we prefer FFP2)

Returning from business or private trips to risk areas– also within Germany – we ask you to take up your training with us only after 2 weeks and a negative covid 19 test.

Please behave accordingly when within the last 14 days you were in contact with a covid 19 infected person or a person with covid 19 associated symptoms: coughing, fever, body aches, loss of olfactory sense or if you have these symptoms yourself.

We ask our students not to stay in the office longer than necessary. Remember to bring warm clothing so that we can air the car sufficiently.

Our cancellation rules apply also when driving lessons or tests cannot be taken due to covid 19.


Thank you for your understanding and stay healthy !!!


You learn to drive in a quiet and friendly atmosphere and are sensitively accompanied in your learning process.

Whether you are starting from scratch, converting your license from abroad or refreshing your driving skills – we inform and advice you around the regular driving license class B and accompanied driving at 17.

Christine Timmer Driving School was founded in 2000. We are quietly located and conveniently close to the U-Bahn station Theresienstraße U8/U2 and the bus stop Augustenstraße lines 153/154.

Christine Timmer, founder and owner of the driving school, started to work as a driving instructor in 1987 and has run her own business since July 2000.  She is a trained teacher for English and Social Sciences and travelled a lot especially into Anglo-American countries. Theory lessons and driving classes in English for new learners and converters have thus become a vital part of her business.

It is our concern to accompany especially women in their learning processes with devotion and engagement.

Refresher students with little driving experience, fear of inner-city traffic or uneasiness on the motorway regain self-confidence and self-assurance to get back behind the wheel.

Holders of a foreign driving license are informed about the special aspects of German traffic rules and are individually prepared for the practical driving test.

In the training we consider the specific social and cultural backgrounds of our foreign students.

There are two female and two male instructors in the team who all teach in English as well. Our teaching methods are flexible and considerate to individual needs. We accompany our clients of all ages – e.g. beginners, converters of foreign licenses, refresher students with little experience – to their goals: the driving license class B or more road safety and confidence.

For the practical training we have two Audis A3 with manual transmission and an Audi A 1 with automatic transmission for more relaxed and laid-back driving.
