Replacing lost driving licence
 
Hi, does anyone out there know the procedure for replacing a lost [important] document? In my case it's a driving licence. I belive I have to go to the police and get a report and with this report I can get a new licence. Same for other documents I guess? Any experience out there?

Thanks

You need confirmation from the Police that you have lost it. Take this report to the Strassenverkehrsamt and a new credit card license will cost you 15 CHF. You may even be able to do this by post.

Call the strassenverkehrsampt in Zurich on 058 811 32 92

Well get a load of this. I went to Strassenversk. yesterday morning, and the new licence appeared this morning! That's leess than a 24 hour turnaround.

AMAZING!

Even more amazing, I just got the bill.

15CHF. Yes, that's right, fifteen!

According to the website, juts fill in the form and send it.

"Duplikat Lernfahr-/Führerausweis

Sie senden uns per Post folgende Unterlagen zu, innerhalb von ca. 5 Arbeitstagen erhalten Sie den neuen Ausweis"

Also the form says no photo needs to be submitted if you already had the credit card sized license.

So I am trying that way and saving a trip to Uetlibergstrasse. When there is an outcome I will update here to confirm it can all be done without visiting in person.

Also it seems you just need to file a police report if the License was stolen, to be confirmed as mine is simply lost... somewhere...somewhere...
