quesiton about drivers licence and sending a copy of it to me online
 
I'm on holiday in Greece! But I just found out I forgot my driver's licence and so can't hire a car. Whoops! I was wondering if, as far as anyone knows, it would be possible for the relevant Swiss authority to send me a scan of my licence for me to then photocopy? And if so, who is the relevant authority? I should know, I know, but re bureaucracy I just sign where asked and forget everything. Anyway, I'd appreciate a heads up from anyone.

Anyway, all the best from sunny (and windy) Santorini.:msncool:

Zürich Strassenverkehrsamt, don't know if they will do it though.

ask the rental agency. I would say they won't accept it. But they might be open today and tomorrow....

Not sure if this is still possible, but when I forgot my driver's licence - I was able to phone the DVLA in the UK (when I still lived in the UK) and they faxed a copy against a fee, can't remember how much.

DVLA will now give a confirmation online free of charge. You can also give a code no, so your license can be checked by someone else. The code lasts 21 days.

Thanks everyone and thanks for the link Island Monkey. I'll let you know what happened. I'm sure you can't wait:D

Sean Connery I'm not quite sure I understand what you're saying, it must be the accent you devilish fellow:D

thanks neddy but I'd rather take a donkey round the island all week than have my landlady go through my stuff:D. She's the only one with keys!

Odile and fatmanfilms, thanks but not applicable:msntongue:

and here's to another part of the world I've gone online and looked at EF from!
