Re: How do you change CH driving licence back to UK licence?

By back, I am assuming that you had a UK license before you came to Switzerland. I could be wrong here, but I am pretty sure that a UK license is a lifetime thing. So I think you just have to contact the DVLA and request a replacement license and they will just send you a new one. You will just need to have a UK address to have the license registered against.
You are indeed partially wrong. A UK license is valid until you are 70 and thereafter is renewed upon you meeting certain conditions for 5 years at a time. These conditions being in sound body and mind.

But otherwise yes you simply contact our nice Welsh friends and they issue you with a new one - only now its a credit card style!
