Re: Car Import - 12 Month Rule

Have no problem not driving it until we get Swiss plates. The only catch 22 I see is getting the vehicle to the inspection without driving it

On the off chance I am stopped by the police on the way to inspection, do you think they would deem that a violation?

Getting to the inspection (it must be the most direct way) is a special case.
You have the following options:
A) Drive on US plates and valid frontier insurance (It is btw. CHF 250 for one month)
B) Get Swiss day plates.
C) Drive w/o any plates, plus an active insurance quote.
D) Bring it on a trailer.
If option C is possible depends on the canton. In some (AFAIK in ZH) it is, in others you have to use option B. Check with the local SAN/StVA-
