Re: Is it legal to drive with swiss studentís driving license in Italy?

I have tried to translate the German text from the "TCS FAQ" into my bad English:
Quote:
Driving abroad with a learners license?
The learners license is not a drivers license under international law. It is, therefore, valid only in Switzerland. This applies to accompanied learning trips by car as well as to unaccompanied learning trips by motorcycle. The fact clearly derives from article 41 of the "Vienna Convention on Road Traffic", which Switzerland has ratified and set into force in 1992. If you still drive abroad with your learners license, you risk a lot. In case of an accident, you are not coverd by your insurance. Local authorities will classify this as driving without a valid license.

Short answer; "no"
