Penalties and license revocation

In Switzerland, a violation of the Road Traffic Act (RTA), whether simple or serious, will always involve in parallel a criminal procedure to punish the violation of the RTA and an administrative procedure (ADMAS) to withdraw the driving license.

We represent you both in your criminal defense and in the administrative proceedings related to the withdrawal of your driver’s license.

Given that the administrative authority will rely on the facts retained by the criminal authority to render its decision, the defense of the criminal aspect of the LCR infraction will have a significant impact on the administrative procedure.

Key points

  • Criminal proceedings: custodial sentence, monetary penalty, fine, confiscation of vehicle
  • Administrative procedure: warning, withdrawal of fixed-term driver’s license, withdrawal of indefinite driver’s license, withdrawal of preventive driver’s license
