Getting back my drivers licence?

As I have been here for more than a year, I had to change my national driving licence for the Swiss one. Now as I am considering coming back to my home country, I was wondering whether I will get bac my old DL or whether I can keep driving with the Swiss one even when not living in Switzerland. And if a change is needed, how shell I proceed?

Thanks for your tips

Re: Getting back my drivers licence?

If you're returning to your home country permanently, I think you will need to revert back to the DL of this country.

I would guess this is something you should only do once there. Your driving privileges should remain the same, and you should still be on the driver database of your home country.

You should enquire to the Driver Licence Authority of your home country to check out the specifics. I'm sure this is easily done on-line.

I see from your profile that you are from the Czech Rep. They may be EF members that can specifically advise.
