If you have your own number plates or the car has it's own and your happy with the state of it as soon as you give the cash and get the money.
The dealer will give you this little grey booklet sign it and as long as your insured drive it away.
I just sold a car, it was through a garage but it was as fast as that, 10 mins at the most as long as he was sure that the other guy was insured he just drove off.
When I bought my first car here I used the garage plates for a week because I didnt know how to get to the OCN (vechile plate registration place) If you havent got any plates buy some first, you can attach them to any car.

This is not a very accurate post. You canot just walk in and buy plates unless you have a specific car to attached them to as in order to get plates you need insurance.
In order to get insurance you need a car as quite logically a Fiat 500 costs slightly less than a sodding great Ferrari to insure, despite being manufactured by the same company.
Garsage plates are available to bona fida garages, you need to show prove of a workshop and a business and garage plates (ending in "U") allow a garage to drive any car and be insured. If soemthing stupid happens when on "U" plates they get taken away, the garage guy will have a problem to run his business. Indeed without plates for a whole week would tend to suggest itr may not be quite true.
Fancy plates with more or less numbewrs in particular sequences are available, usualy sold under auction, check the SAN website.
To get plates is REALLY easy. You find a car and agree to purchase, you take a copy of the registration document and send to your prefered insurance company. They will issue a reciept of insurance directly to the SAN in Blecherette, Lausanne, also in Aigle, Nyon and Yverdon in canton VD. You go to the SAN office of your preference, give them the old registration dox, they re-issue a new one with your details and insurance policy marked on it, give you the plates which you then attach and drive off.
It can be if the car has not got a valid expertise MFA/MOT they may ask you to have one at the same time as getting your plates or shortly afterwards, if you don't really know much, buy a car with a valid cert, it's far easier and cheaper in the long run than wasting hours running about and worrying whether new tyres are Chf 2.50 cheaper here or their, time also has a value....
