A new test facility (CLIC test facility, CTF3) at CERN will study the drive beam generation for the compact linear collider (CLIC). This facility has to accelerate a 3.5 A electron beam in almost fully loaded structures. The pulse contains about 2000 bunches that fill every second bucket and has a length of more than a micro-second. Different options for the lattice of the drive beam accelerator are presented, based on FODO-cells and triplets as well as solenoids. The transverse stability is simulated, including the effects of beam jitter, alignment and beam-based correction.
