Converting D class NY state license to Class D in Zurich?

I have asked this at

[Drivers licence] Conversion and questions

But maybe this is a better place. That post was too long.

Class D in NY state allows me to drive trucks, while B class here allows me to only drive cars. Is it the possible to exchange a D class to a D class without doing a road test/exam? Or only D to B?

at the Kreisbüro, they were not so sure. Only told me that I need a medic exam besides the eye test.

Re: Converting D class NY state license to Class D in Zurich?

When I converted my "regular" US license to CH (in 1994) it came back with endorsements to drive things much larger than standard passenger vehicles. I subsequently converted the CH to Norwegian, and back again, never being questioned if I was properly qualified to drive a lorry or bus.

This is not a very useful answer with a good weblink, but unless you foresee a future use for the extra endorsements I wouldn't waste any time trying to figure it out - potluck, see what you get. I would be surprised if letter categories have a parallel conversion from US to anywhere in Europe, or rest of the world for that matter.

Unless its an EU D permit its not likely you can do a straight swap..
worldwide the exchange of driver lisc. are for personal vehicles CAR/BIKE
ONLY.... Swiss is again NOT an EU country and their interpretation
is more strict..

Good Luck but I doubt it..
