Registering a Car - Documentation Required

Hi all,

Hopefully a simple YES to confirm that I have the right documents listed to go and get my plates for insurance! So I have just bought a car and need to get the plates before I can go pick it up! Documents I intend to bring:

I am from the UK and am on a B Permit!

1) Car's Grey Document (already stamped as cancelled)
2) Proof of insurance (getting that today)
3) UK Driving License

Questions

Do i need to bring:

1) Proof of address e.g. a copy of the contract for the apartment. I move in there tomorrow also so don't have anything else addressed yet
2) Copy of Permit

I understand I need to change my driving license within a year but there isn't any impact on me driving on my UK license now is there and regsitering the car?

Thanks in advance

Ed

Your residents permit, you can drive on your UK license but may as well change it over now.

OK Here's the thing abouit the permit! I have just deregistered from Zug and am having my permit changed to Cham so I don't have my permit with me at the moment! I do have a scanned copy of the original permit!

Will this suffice?

Probably, why not go and ask them yourself!

I am going to tomorrow! Just wanted to double check before going there! I dont speak a word of German yet so just wanted the reassurance of checking here first. Plus hopefully should save a second trip!
