Can I drive an old car for 12 months?

I am arriving soon and I have a car from 2003. I am aware of the rule that would allow me to drive my car for 12 months, but I am not sure which criteria applies. I need it for a month or two, I don't care after that.

Should be fine, you have been economical with info so difficult to be sure. Is the car road legal in its country of registration?

Sorry about that. Yes, Hyundai Santa Fe 2003 is ok to drive in my country, but I am pretty sure isn't something you can import to Switzerland long term because it is euro 2 diesel.

You might not be able to register it, but it can be used in the first year. There may be some issues in low emission zones.
