Re: [Drivers licence] Conversion and questions

View Post
Hi All
I have a valid Singapore driving Licence (manual car), and once I read on some websites that it is required to do practical test in order to get Swiss Licence. I asked around in my office, seems no one knows. So I went to a driving school in Zurich, they told me I have to do the practical test and advise to sign up some driving lessons with them to get farmilar with the Right-hand side traffic, to know Swiss traffic rules. I am on 4 lessons with them now.
Today I get to know this topic, it seems I am allowed to direct convert my singapore license to Swiss license without any test?
I check on Zurich Traffic department website, but I have zero in German, would anyone please help me with the correct link to Traffic department website at the Conversion section, where I can copy/paste info into Google translate!
I just want to check if I really need to do practical test or wrong info given from the driving. Center.

Thanks very much

Singaporean licence holders must take the practical test before they can exchange their licence to a Swiss one.
