Hi guys, I'm coming from Norway for a one-year program and since I'll be travelling back and forth a lot to school, I've been thinking about getting a motorcycle. I'm licensed in Norway. I was wondering if anyone could help me clarify what the typical buying process of a used motorcycle is in Switzerland? Here typically, you would find and pay for the bike, then it needs to pass a safety before you can plate it (this can involve having it brought to a mechanic) and then it needs to be insured before finally you can legally drive it. This process tends to involve a lot of either getting friends with a truck to help you move the bike or renting a trailer. Is it similar in Zurich? or is there a window where you can you ride it home once you've bought it and then go through the insurance process? Thanks!

My dissertation supervisor is visiting Switzerland next week and is keen to try driving one of the very few electric vehicles around. Does anyone know if they are rented out?

If you do the theory test to convert your license and you fail can you still drive if you have been here less than a year?

Hello! I have a 2003 mini cooper and it suddenly started making a weird noise, I took it to a garage and they said the head gasket had gone, but I don't think it has, theres no residue around the oil cap, no white smoke out of the exhaust and i didnt lose power, it was just making a dodgy noise. Any constructive and useful advice would be appreciated, I've had more than enough experience to know that the 2001-2003 mini coopers are not the best.. I am thinking of taking it to another for a second opinion but would obviously rather give it a shot myself if its something simple, alternatively if anybody has any diagnostic equipment i could rent that would be a good shout too. Thanks!

If anyone has a UK or Spanish plated car they want to sell please let me know as i am a traveling musician and being based in Spain have the opportunity to drive and insure this type of vehicle.  I'm looking for a small car because i do a lot of traveling and I don't care to spend a lot of money on a fancy car but would prefer a working man's auto.  Tony

Hi All, I'm looking for some advice on cars. We drive a toyota picnic now, which I love, and is a perfect size for our family of 5, including one carseat. We will soon be adding another carseat, however, which will make things a bit tight, especially when we have an extra passenger. The back storage is also quite limited as it's very narrow. So we are considering getting something larger, but don't want anything too bulky or difficult to maneuver in all the tight parking garages. Any suggestions/experiences would be much appreciated, particulary with regard to: most functional use of space (this is what I love most about the picnic); bench seats vs. bucket seats with two car seats; large enough back to fit either two strollers or a double stroller; gas consumption. Thanks so much!!

Does anyone have any recommendations for car rental agencies in Basel? Looking to hire a car for a weekend away and apparently Basel is cheaper than Zurich - does this still hold?

Hi everyone. Hope someone can help. We are flying into Zurich from Dublin in June and we were wondering if anyone knows how we would get to Delemont by way of the train ? Is there a direct train or do we need to change somewhere ? and roughly how much would this journey cost ? Thanks a lot and looking forward to coming to Switzerland.

Good afternoon, My name is Evelyn, never taken driving lessons before and therefore I'm not sure how everything works. Which are the best driving schools around? I'm seeking for a professional instructor who is able to make me feel comfortable and confident.  I'm a quick and enthusiastic learner! Many thanks, Evelyn
