Driving License

Hi,

I will have lived in Zurich for 1 year by the end of July but I am moving to another country end of October. Does anybody know if I can extend my driving license period here in Zurich or do I have to convert to Swiss and after 4 months back again to the old license?

Thanks

Re: Driving License

I assume you are moving back to the country the license was issued in.
If the license will not be expired by the time you move back you could just do nothing, but you could get in trouble in case of a police check so I don't recommend this, converting the license is very easy in switzerland unless you have health problems then it's a real mess.
If the license is expiring and you need to renew it before you move back maybe you can do this at the embassy, this depends on the country of origin, european council countries probably don't allow this anymore but you can check.
