Driving License Exchange in Zurich

Hi All,


I was wondering if someone could help. I have lived almost a year in Zurich, and need to exchange my US driver's license for a Swiss one.



Are there any recommendations for an opthamologist who could give me the requisite eye test?


I am in Kreis 3 and don't have a car, but I do rent one from time to time.


Thanks!


KD

You don't need an opthalmologist. Go to any eyeglasses shop - Fielmann, etc. and they'll do the test. Maybe call ahead to make an appointment.

That took a while! I hope you got your eye test and licence transfer a while back ...

I did get my license. Everything went so well. Zurich seems to have the best civil servants on the planet!
