It's called 'Driving Today', available in any big book store.
There's also online stuff, such as http://www.fahrschule-wallisellen.ch/the-way/theorie/

Not sure if you mean the test or just the Swiss Highway Code. I was given one free in English when I changed my licence to a Swiss one (some years ago)...

Re: Swiss driving rules manual in English

The laws in Switzerland change all the time. If you rely on an old book or CD you may not be aware of new rules for cyclists, rules for roundabouts, low speed limit areas, using mobiles, even the limits of alcohol levels.

You really should buy the latest information, especially if you are facing an exam.

It's called "Handbook of Swiss Traffic Regulations" published by the Federal Department of Justice and Police.

Distributors: Eidg. Drucksachen - und Materialzentrale, 3000 Bern.

Price CHF5.- (although mine was free).

Mine is the 1989 version and contains information of horse drawn vehicles. Furthermore as a refer to it daily I would not like to part with it. I'm sure the is an up-to-date version.

It is referred to here, when a verbose cyclist made some posts. Google should help too...

Re: Swiss driving rules manual in English

Perhaps you're not aware that you can access the material and tests online? A lot of driging schools offer that option. For instance fahrschultheorie.ch (no idea if their their price is competitive). Subscribe for however long you want.

The drawback being, of course, you'll need an additional subscription if you want a refresher sometime later.
