Is it possible to transfer a plate between vehicles.

I have heard a few people here in CH mention that its possible to use the same set of vehicle registration plates on 2 vehicles as long as they are not being driven at the same time i.e. swapping the plates from one car to another.
I called BS on this but seems to be a popular notion. Can anyone shed any light on this. Thanks.

It is possible to share one plate between two cars or two motorbikes. No car / bike option, and no more than two vehicles in total. You pay taxes for the most expensive one of the two, of course.

You register 2 cars with 1 no.

Re: Is it possible to transfer a plate between vehicles.

I have 4 swapable plates (two car, two bike) for 8 vehicles, plus another 4 fixed.

Been doing this for decades.

In Austria, it's one for three vehicles, and for Swiss old-timers (30+ years), it's one plate for seven vehicles.
