Re: Importing a car that was gifted

Massive thanks to everyone.



I had a feeling this might be the case, but ultimately it's not the end of the world; for once having an old and cheap car pays off ! I used one of the valuation webpages and in total it should only be around 600 francs.

Whilst I have your collective ears (though I might post a new thread if neccessary), what are the rules regarding secondary drivers of cars that are still registered abroad? Whilst she finishes up her contract over the border my girlfriend is driving over to visit. We are doing road trips etc, and according to what I've read i should not be driving the car as I am already a resident of Switzerland and they would consider that an importation? (https://www.ch.ch/en/driving_foreign_car_across_border/). We are being careful and my girlfriend is doing all of driving (more beers for me!), but it would be nice to share the workload a bit. My other worry was that if I ever drove it without her they might bang me up for grand theft auto!


Thanks again guys
