As far as I'm aware UAE is not on the list of countries that allows a direct conversion, or even just a practical test. It appears you'll need to go through the full theory and practical test.

This thread answers a lot of things: https://www.englishforum.ch/transpor...s-mark-ii.html

UAE is not a country on FERDO list. So, they will not directly give you the Swiss license. You'll need to do a license conversion practical test.

You will need to pass the practical test which you get one attempt. If you fail you then need to take both theory and practical. In Vaud, that is in french.

If you pass and you got your license less than 3 years ago, there is a short course on road safety to be completed in one year after your pass date.
