Kenyans who are in the possession of a valid Kenyan driving licence may use it for a period of up to one year as long as the licence has been translated and authenticated by the Swiss authorities (Click here).

After living in Switzerland for one year one MUST obtain a Swiss driving licence to be able to drive. This involves taking both the theoretical and practical driving test in Switzerland.
