Swiss Roads Are The Best – European Tour 2022

A little vid of some time spent riding my BMW GS 1250 on a European Tour in Switzerland

Here a few tips for riding and planning a road trip motorcycle tour in Switzerland

What documents do you need to motorcycle tour in Switzerland?

If you’re riding in Switzerland, you need to carry the following documents:
Passport (or identity card)
Driving licence (check it is in date!)
Motorcycle Insurance documents- check you are covered for riding in Europe
Breakdown cover
Vehicle V5 logbook (which must show your correct address)
Vehicle must be legally taxed and MOT’d
International Driving Permit if required
Personal travel insurance

Do I need an international driving permit to drive/ ride in Switzerland?

Most UK citizens do not need an IDP to drive in Switzerland, as long as you have a card driving licence issued in the UK (in date, of course!)

You might need one if you have:

a paper driving licence only
a licence issued in Gibraltar, Guernsey, Jersey or the Isle of Man
