This thread will help with the conversion: http://www.englishforum.ch/transport...onversion.html

For buying a car, no problem. You just need insurance - if you need finance then your permit status might come into play....is it a B or an L?

Hi,

As far as I know you need to apply for the Swiss License within 12 months of the data of entry on your permit. And you have to take the test within next three months of finishing those 12 months.

I would also suggest that you take a few lessons as well.
