In this paper, switchability and bifurcation of motions in a double excited Fermi acceleration oscillator is discussed using the theory of discontinuous dynamical systems. The analytical conditions for motion switching in such a Fermi-oscillator are presented. Bifurcation scenario for periodic and chaotic motions is presented, and the analytical predictions of periodic motions are presented. Finally, periodic and chaotic motions in such an oscillator are illustrated.
