Swiss Driving Licence
Hi there

Has anyone ever moved to Switzerland, got a driving licence and then left the country and moved back to Switzerland?

Can you still use the same driving licence?

By way of background, my partner and I moved to Switzerland in autumn 2014 from the UK and we exchanged our UK licences for Swiss ones. We then were posted to Malaysia for a year but had to get Malaysian driving licences out there so we currently have Malaysian licences but we kept our Swiss driving licence photo cards. We are moving back to Switzerland in the summer.

I didn't think the Swiss ones would be valid once we left the country as you have to declare you official departure, but now I am not so sure. Might the licences still be valid seeing as they never gave us back our UK licences?

Many thanks for any ideas on this.

Kind regards

Re: Swiss Driving Licence
No reason that they would not be still valid.

Re: Swiss Driving Licence
According to Art. 26 VZV you are obliged to tell your local StVA that you're moving abroad. But I don't see a fine for not doing so. Fines seem only to be regulated if you fail to tell your StVA when moving within Switzerland.
