The "Centre de Formation pour Conducteurs" (French for "Drivers' Training Centre") is also in Colmar-Berg. Every person has to make an "Obligatory Course" after they got their driving license in order for it to become a definitive license. This has to be done in the timespan after three months and before two years after the person passed their practical driving test.
