Driving in Switzerland e-book – from driving license to car registration

An e-book guide about driving in Switzerland

Switzerland is a small country with a big reputation: the Swiss are sticklers in following laws. Driving in Switzerland is certainly not excluded from bureaucracy and legalities.

Here are some warm-up questions about driving in Switzerland: did you know that a driving lesson in Zurich costs upwards of 95 francs? Or that citizens of a number of countries get to simply swap their foreign permit for a Swiss driving license - as long as they don't miss the deadline?

Thought so.

I wrote this e-book intending to cover every bit of information required to drive in Switzerland legally. The content is geared explicitly at private drivers wanting to obtain a Swiss driving license of category “B” for passenger vehicles.

How you will benefit:

  • Step-by-step instructions on how to obtain a Swiss driving license, including timings and costs
  • Detailed requirements for a smooth conversion of your foreign driving license
  • List of countries accepting a Swiss driving license
  • How to obtain an international driving license in Switzerland
  • Driving in Switzerland for tourists
  • Frequently asked questions covering everything from consequences of failed tests to the registration of import cars

Here is a sample Q&A from the e-book:

Will I be able to drive during the processing period?

During the waiting period, you will not be in possession of a valid license. Therefore, it is important that you carry a copy of your “Antragsformular” with you in case you are pulled over by the police.

This question is just one of many covered in this comprehensive guide on driving in Switzerland. Conveniently divided into six chapters, this e-book allows you to obtain a driving license in Switzerland for the first time - or smoothly convert your foreign permit.

The following chapters are included:

  1. Obtaining a Swiss driving license from scratch
  2. Converting a foreign driving license
  3. Where in the world is the Swiss driving license valid? And where to use an international driving license?
  4. Driving in Switzerland for tourists
  5. Frequently asked questions
