How to obtain CH Driver's License?

Since at some point I'll be traveling to a place where public transit doesn't tread, I'll need a driver's license once we're in CH. Can anybody please tell me what is involved in getting one? Currently I have an American license.

Re: How to obtain CH Driver's License?

One important question is have you been here for more than one year. If less, you can convert it easily by either applying through the Gemeinde or Road transport department where you live.

If over a year, then this will involve and application and possibly a road test with some lessons (recommended). I did 5 lessons and applied to the Fullinsdorf RTD (i live in baselland). Good to know that mostly in the 30 zone, one has to look out for traffic from the right, so please stop and look (or pretend if you are doing a test).

Best wishes
