Re: Authorization for US driving license
You need to have a printout from the DMV of when you got your license. It needs to contain some other stuff (you can find it on this forum by using the search function) Also why are you using the police? You need to go to the SAN (Thats what it is called in VD, dont know Basel) and they are the ones doing it, not the police. Nothing needed from the Embassy
I have converted my USA License that way, as did my wife.
They do not give it directly, You still need the Eyecheck (almost any optometrist will take care of this for a fee)
And then it still takes a few weeks to get the license in the mail.
