Sending car papers for an address change

Hi all,
I moved within canton ZH, so following these instructions I notified online my new address to Strassenverkehrsamt. Then it says to send them the original car papers so they can change the address there.

My doubt is: can I still drive around while I don't have the car papers? What happens if I get stopped?

Thanks

As the others said. However do not drive abroad until you get it back. (Not much of an issue in these days, I mean going abroad as the borders are mostly closed).

Re: Sending car papers for an address change

It will be surprisingly quick, a few days at most. And every policeman has heard the story numerous times.
