Re: Do you HAVE to relinquish your UK drivers license when you get a Swiss one?

Apologies for digging up an old thread...but... What??? Give up my UK licence?

I have a home in the UK, and a car. Which I use to commute to the airport, to come out to Zurich Monday to Friday. I might stay here occasional weekends, when the lovely wife will come out to see me.

I've no plans to get a car here, but we have an office pool car I can borrow.

How does the licence thing work for me then? 4.5 days here, 2.5 at home.

Regards

It depends on what your official resident status is ... here or there.
I would guess that being here for 5 days per week could pertain to Swiss residency, as recognised by officialdom, in which case (as stated above) after one year, if a Swiss 'resident' is found driving with a foreign issued licence, you could well end up in vat of brown smelly stuff.
