Motor Scooter License

I know similar questions have been answered in this forum, but I'm having trouble finding a post that addresses my question exactly and I can't find help elsewhere online.

I'm from the United States and I have a license to drive a car back home. I'm going to be here for a little over a year and I'm looking into buying a 50cc motor scooter. Do I need do get a special category F license or can I just use my drivers license from home? Can I have a passenger?

Thanks for your help!

Re: Motor Scooter License

Unless you have a US license to drive a small motorcycle, you cannot take a passenger with you (Unless the passenger has a license).

You need to apply for a license for a small motorcycle / roller / scooter and drive here as a learner. As a learner you cannot drive outside of Switzerland.

Re: Motor Scooter License

Aw, man. That sucks. Even for the kind of scooter that only goes about 45kph? They don't require any license at home.

Would it be hard to get that learner's license?

Re: Motor Scooter License

Once you live here, you can get the learner's license within one day.
