What if a car has no valid MFK and licenseplate? Will police issue me an one day licenseplate or the car has to be transported there?
Day plates. You will get them from your MFK/StVA/SAN, which is not the police (except Basel City)

But you might need a certificate of a recognized garage that the vehicle is apparently road worthy and would not fail the MFK on spot for important safety reasons.

Some testing places might accept it on a flat bed, w/o plates. You can test it at any of the approved testing places anywhere in Switzerland: See guideline No.7 https://asa.ch/online-bibliothek/richtlinien/

Canton testing places: https://asa.ch/strassenverkehrsaemter/adressen/

Re: Testing a Car (MFK)

Anybody know...If I buy a car in Zurich from someone who has received the MFK notice, but the Ausweis is still valid, how long will it take for Luzern (my home Kanton) to get around to sending me a letter?

Also, what's the maximum amount of timeI can delay the test?

The reason I'm asking is that I injured my left knee pretty bad skiing, and I can't drive either of our two manual transmission cars, so I'm looking for a cheap Subaru with auto trans to drive around for a while until my knee heals, but don't want to bother with repairs or Prüfung.

Thanks!

Re: Testing a Car (MFK)

Based on experience, a month or two, but that's Ticino where things are a bit slow.

Re: Testing a Car (MFK)

I also got an invite for the MFK recently. The original date was 15 March and i could move to latest 15 May (so 2 months, like ST2lemans wrote).
