2 vehicles 1 licence plate – VERY handy indeed!

There is something in Switzerland I thought I’d share with you that I think is quite unique to this country. It’s called „Wechselschilder“.

 

Wechselschilder are vehicle licence plates that you can interchange if you have 2 automobiles in your household. – note you may only drive 1 vehicle at a time! This is quite convenient for people who have a „sportscar“ that they only drive in the summer, or perhaps a large vehicle like an SUV that they drive less often, – perhaps for vacationing or large shopping trips, or a second car that perhaps your children have to learn to drive on.

 

The licence plates are interchangeable on the 2 registered vehicles, and the plastic frames „click“ down to place the plates securly.

The monetary advantage is of course that you pay less insurance, because you only have 1 vehicle on the road at a time (naturally the more expensive car will be charged)  However, BEWARE – don’t DARE try to change only 1 plate, and have both vehicles on the road at the same time or you will pay dearly!!

 

Good old Swiss and their ideas!
