EU student driving in Switzerland

I am a student in Switzerland, with an EU passport and a nice friend who lent me his car (registered in an EU country) for the time being.

I talked to the customs and they said that they need a declaration from my friend saying that he is happy to lend me the car to drive around here, and I'll get a piece of paper saying that I can drive it (this being some sort of exemption for students that are allowed to keep the cars from home).

Now, I am here for about 11 months now. The question is, should I change the driving licence, or am I exempt for that too? Is there any problem if I do change it, since I'll be driving a car not registered in Switzerland?
