Driving license exchange due to expiry of validity

Service Description

Driving licenses issued as of 19.01.2013 are limited to 15 years.

The validity of a driving license issued before 19.01.2013 is governed by Annex 8e to the Driving License Ordinance.

If the validity of the driver's license has expired, a new driver's license must be applied for, unless you renounce the driver's license.

However, the time limit only affects the driver's license document, not the underlying driver's license. No medical examination or other verification is associated with the document exchange.

The rights documented in the driver's license remain valid even if the document is exchanged. The individual driver's license classes that are assigned when a driver's license is exchanged are governed by Annex 3 of the Driver's License Ordinance.
