deanobennetto has no particular reputation at present
how easy is it to obtain a different license plate shape?

Morning, I have a square rear number plate and have bought a new car and would like to change this to a rectangular one. I have read all the very helpful threads on here about the ausweis process but woud like to know when I go to liestal (Office for Basel land) to change the auswies over and arrange the Wechselschild can they exchange the plate on the same day for the new shape or will I need to pre order/arrange..and if so any experience on how to do this, how long this takes and how much will it cost?

Thanks all

Takes minutes to stamp a new one.

To proceed, you can fill out the "Nachbestellung von Kontrollschilder" for Baselland. Delivery in 3-4 weeks. The internal link to the cost (Gebühren) does not work. (Ct. Zürich charges CHF 20 per Kontrollschild, I recall paying something like that):

I thought OP was talking about shapes not involving right angles.

Re: how easy is it to obtain a different license plate shape?

They asked me what shape I wanted at the office when I went to register a car and simply took my long one and changed it for the more square shaped one. It took about two minutes and cost 20chf I think.

All Swiss license plates are rectangular, none are square.
