I have a car in the UK. I cannot insure it with a Swiss licence. I must have a UK Licence for my car insurance to be valid.

I want to occasionally drive in Switzerland after 12 months.

Is this possible?
This is foremostly an UK insurance issue. From the story I read so far UK car insurances seam to bit a bit anal.
The options I see:
-Find an UK insurance willing to insure you.
-Do the Swiss driving license from scratch.
-Ask the Swiss authority if they can keep the UK license on hold, so that you can temporary exchange it when you need in the UK (using EceErgin problem)

Some UK wise/national with a better idea?

I am so frustrated. Maybe if I understand the logic, it will be easier to accept.
Many thanks in advance
Be courteous, friendly, but strict and precise.

Point them to
ASA Richtline No. 1 Abschnitt 36, Seite 22 https://asa.ch/wp-content/uploads/we...ndex.html#p=22
Artikel 44 Absatz 4 Verkehrszulassungsverordnung https://www.admin.ch/opc/de/classifi...index.html#a44

then ask them nicely if you missed something and if yes based on which other applicable law or regulations they intend to keep the driving license.

If they do not name any other regulations and still want to keep the other license request an "anfechtbare Verfügung" why they do not follow Art. 44 Abs 4 VZV / ASA No.1. An "anfechtbare Verfügung" is an official decision against which you can formally object. The Verfügung must instruct how you can object and what the time limit is.

If they name other applicable laws or regulations note them down and request a copy of them. Then check what is written there before you request an "anfechtbare Verfügung".
