Hi

if I pass a driver's licence in Switzerland, can I drive all of Europe?

Re: Switzerland driver's lecence

And how exactly do you propose to do that from Turkey, do you speak any of the national languages?

Re: Switzerland driver's lecence

Why do you answer a quiestion with a complete off topic quiestion?

It's none of our business what languages he speaks!

Cause his location is set to Turkey, License is to be taken in (one of) the languages of Switzerland if you want to pass it here..... . So that might be why perhaps. I believe you also have to be a current resident of Switzerland to take the test here. and then of course there is the high cost of getting it here.
and pretty sure a Turkey one would allow you to drive in Europe also (for a set amount of time)

But yes you could drive all over Europe with it.

You can't take a Swiss test if you live in Turkey therefore a rather stupid OP.

Re: Switzerland driver's lecence

It's still a valid question and has not been answered.

I didn't know that in order to ask questions and get answers in this forum you have to actually live here...

Nice to know though!

Edit: Thankfully someone did!

Re: Switzerland driver's lecence

Well, if you (MB) read the question the OP is asking if a Swiss drivers licence will allow him/her to drive in Europe. And in order to get a Swiss licence you need to speak one of the languages and live in Switzerland (not Turkey).

You can't take a Swiss test if you live in Turkey therefore a rather stupid OP.
Note to self: Never ask questions about a country prior to moving there. High risk of being labeled stupid.

False.
Really? I always thought that the exam needs to be taken in one of the Swiss languages?

Actually if you check out the OP's other posts you will see there is no stated intention of moving here. Rather it seems clear that he (or she) will stay in Turkey for the time being.

Oh Sorry. Maybe your initial analysis was correct. Especially that bit about the solar eclipses.

Re: Switzerland driver's lecence

you can drive everywhere in Europe with swiss licence
you don't need to speak or write any of the swiss languages to take the written test. the test can also be taken in English.
you need patience to ignore a lot of stupid posts in EF. for most people the primary purpose of posting is time passing and not providing information. but stick around and you will get answers...but that's hard work.
