License safety tests

Swiss Smallbore Rifle Club are an accredited Longarm safety test centre.  We run regular safety tests throughout the year, where instruction and testing is performed.  We have a very high pass rate.

Safety tests are one of a number of essential items required to acquire a shooter's license, the others being:

A Genuine Reason (Eg being a member of Swiss Smallbore Rifle Club for Target Shooting).

A police check - which is done on submission of your license application.

Step 1:   Download and study the Firearms (Longarms) Users Guide.   


Step 2: Familarise yourself with the information regarding safe storage


Step 3: Book yourself into our next test by filling in the form below.  

Upon successful completion of the test, you will receive a 'Completion Certificate'. With this certificate, you may proceed with the application of a Firearms Licence.  (You will also need a "Genuine Reason" eg membership of a target shooting club for "Target Shooting" or land permission for "Hunting". 


Please note that you will NOT be firing any firearms during this course. The practical section consists of firearms handling, using dummy rounds.

Preparing for the course & what to bring:
You will need to bring a photo ID such as driver licence.  We recommend you bring a pen, dress warmly, as our club house can be quite cool during the winter months.
