Can I still take a Kontrollfahrt while my foreign licence was banned once

I came to Switzerland in 2012 and my Chinese driving licence was banned (taken away for 3 months) once due to speeding within the "one-year" period.

Now I'd like to covert by driving licence to a swiss one. Can I still do the Kontrollfahrt way? Will my previous ban record have any affect on the coversion?

Thanks

You need to change it within one year after registering in Switzerland.
That makes the ban irrelevant: you need to do the full program anyway.

Zurich canton seems to be very nice. They accept conversion after 1 year deadline.

If you have an EU or US license, then perhaps, because conversion is a formality only.
A chinese license requires the Kontrollfahrt. This needs to be done within a year.
