Re: Converting US WA/CA License to Swiss in Zurich and Driving back in the US.

My experience in 2009 with FL drivers license conversion in VD:

- Eye test
- Provide FL license
- Proof issue date via prior EU drivers license which is still valid and was not taken when converting to FL license.
- FL licenses given back immediately without any sticker etc.
- Received Swiss licenses in mail and have both unmarked with correct issue date of EU original license.

Now... Swiss license stolen on recent trip, request new one last week. Got told where is original US one (they must have a record) because it needed to get marked invalid. Mentioned got also stolen, after some discussion was told that no issue and Swiss one to be received this week.

So at best, very inconsisten with recent law change that is not truly enforced.
