Driving License/Registration/Car Insurance

Hello folks

I am new to this and am a student at EHL...

I have brought my car over from the UK and my insurance company back home told me they cover me up to 93 days abroad per year, which will cover me until end November.. but if I wanted to get European insurance with them it would prove very costly.

Am just wondering what is the best option.. If I get Swiss registration plates on the car, and will I need to get my license swapped to a Swiss license? And what is the best car insurance to get? Will swiss car insurance companies insure if my car is still with UK registration plates?

Thanks in advance

Re: Driving License/Registration/Car Insurance

You should call Stuart Collins Insurance. Do a search, I put his info on the EF before when I brought my car over from the UK. You'll need a UK address though for the paperwork to be sent. They will give you 1 year of cover.
