Re: Powerboat License

Where do you want to learn? If you plan on driving on Lake Constance you need a seperate license. It is probably better to do it over the summer to get your level 1 in another country which is coastal. for what do you need the cert? because most places dont even ask you for evidence.

About "If you plan on driving on Lake Constance you need a seperate license."
Not true but you need to know the different rules that apply.

About "get your level 1 in another country";
You can ask at the Strassenverkehrsamt to look at their list of which non-Swiss licences are transferable to a Swiss licence.

Re: Powerboat License

Oh, I stand corrected, sorry I thought you need a completely different license

I only know because I am thinking about doing the Swiss boat licence test & this is one of the topics you have to learn.
I think that earlier it was necessary to have a different licence.
The only place that now demands a different licence is the stretch called "old Rhine" from Bodensee to Stein am Rhein, I believe.

If i could do a test in another country & then swop the licence for the Swiss one I am sure it would be easier......
