Swiss number plate for a UK vehicle

Hi there,

I brought my motorbike from the UK to Switzerland, and I´ll like to change the plate number to a Swiss one. Would anyone know the easiest way to do it?

Many thanks in advance
Antonio

The easiest way ?

Go to a parking late at night armed with a screwdriver !

or

Ring up your insurance company, you will need Swiss insurance and they will advise you, alternatively ring up the "Servioce des Autos" in Geneva and ask, all will be revealed, i don't think it's too difficult if the same bike is already sold in Switzerland

Get swiss insurance
Go down to the strassenvekehrsamp (or french equiv) and book a test to get it imported ...
If it is standard it will be no problem at all

Did you buy it and were living in the UK, or is it a straight import?

Thanks for your reply.

I bought in the UK, and driving it there before bringing it over here..

Is the strassenvekehrsamp = certificate de conformité européen?

strassen-verkehrs-ambt = road-traffic-office

about getting your bike on a swiss licence, do you know how to jodle ? No ? How about emergency stopping on cow-patty covered road ? No ?Tough luck then
