Passed the exam of changement of driving permit. Got my Swiss driving permit!

So happy that I have passed the exam on the road today.

The validate time for my Swiss driving permit is a little strange though: less than 2 years. They said they have a way of calculation that also is linked with the date of my entry to the country.

My questions are:

1) I can now drive ANYWHERE in the world with this permit?

2) There is a 2 days training during this 2 years. If I pass, what would happen? I am then entitled to a long term swiss driving permit?

3) Can I change it to a French driving permit if I move to France? Are they going to take it back?

1) Depends on the agreement that Switzerland has with the country you are planning to drive in, I think you are safe with most if not all the EU countries.

2) I thought the permit was valid for 10 years , never heard about the 2 year thing

3)I think you should be ok

Still confused about the expiry date though. Where did you do your exam? I have to do mine in 3 weeks and I thought that if you pass it thats that. Did you have a drivers liscence before? How long was the test and what did they focus on?
