    Default Are my stickers up to date? Revista and matricula

    Hi just wondering if my vehicle stickers are up to date.

    My Matricula sticker is a square less 2 rounded corners and it has the date 2011
    My Revista sticker is a triangle and it has the date 2010 -2011

    As we are 3 months into 2012 they would be expired in a developed nation. However, I am just checking to see if these stickers are still "up to date" - by Dominican standards of course ...

    Thank you.

    My revista too says 2011 but remembering back to last year you cannot get a 2012 one until September/October so you must be up to date! Ive never had a Revista sticker, last I heard you can only get them in S.D. and Im not driving from L.T. to S.D. to get one. However I paid at the Banco Reservas for one and keep it with my other documents. The advice of the clerk was if asked I show the receipt to the Policia and that is OK.

    I have not seen the current sticker, I don't think it is available yet. Just do what was said and pay for it at BanReservas and keep the reciept in your car to show AMET. I am sure yours is not the new one.

    matricula is a paper stating ownership of the car. what you are talking about here is not matricula, it's MARBETE. a sticker that proves your car has the right to be on the road (like a road tax, i think?). strangely those tickets are issued at the end of the year so a 2011 sticker is good until the end of 2012.
    revista, i believe, is a kind of a car check. not sure how it is called in english. in poland all cars are required to be checked once a year to be "roadworthy" - this is revista. pretty sure that most of cars in DR cannot be deemed roadworthy by any standards... this is why in DR you can get the revista in one of them offices of transporte publico that issues driving licenses. you will need a copy of car insurance, a copy of matricula, your ID and a payment receipt from banreservas. no need to show up with an actual CAR.
