The authority responsible for issuing a Swiss driving licence or a duplicate licence is the cantonal road traffic office in your Swiss place of residence.
If you lose your Swiss licence, you should contact your road traffic office directly, who will explain what you need to do to obtain a duplicate licence. Normally, the following documents are required:
- an application form for a duplicate Swiss driving licence and loss/theft report for the original driving licence, completed in full and signed
- a recent colour passport photo (35x45mm)
- original official identity document of applicant
