Getting a Driving licence

Hi everyone I wanted to get some information on the process and cost of getting a driving license in Switzerland I can drive just not legally and I would like to at some point this year get my license.

Wanted some info on the process who can I call surely they have a Swiss driving standards agency?

Re: The Swiss DVLA

In Switzerland it is dealt with by the Cantons.

I assume this is about getting a license from scratch and not converting an existing, foreign one. In that case a helpful mod moved the thread in the wrong discussion.

A list of all DMV/DVLAs can be found here:
https://asa.ch/strassenverkehrsaemter/adressen/

However the process is the same in all cantons as it is based on federal law and regulations.
See https://www.ch.ch/en/driving-licence/ (in English)

Some nitbits have changed in January 2021, but in the end the process is still the same as it was years ago, here some experiences from EF users:
