Cannot extend drivers license

Good aftenoon,


I found out a few days ago that my Dutch drivers license expired beginning this month while applying for a Swiss one. I've contacted the Dutch authorities and they mentioned I cannot extend it, because I currently don't live in the Netherlands. They can only extend it if I would live outside of Europe. They offered to provide a document that states that I'm a registered driver, but the Dutch embassy mentioned that Swiss authorities don't recognize that. 


The Swiss authorities indicate that I can only provide a valid license to be eligable for a Swiss license. The only solution I've found now is to re-take a driving exam. Clearly not a favourable one...


Did anyone ever experience something similar and how did you resolve it? 


Appreciate your input.

Yup, you are going to have to pass the swiss exam!  You can't provide them with a valid license, so .....oh well.  I think its called school fees ;)
