    Try the local driving school.
    My initial license was done in POP. You should be able to renew there too.

    Renewals for those on the north coast in the Sosua/Cabarete/Puerto Plata area done in Puerto Plata at the Transit office on the right side and down the side street that goes by the Palace of Justice heading toward the Malecon and not at a driving school. When my wife renewed last year it was 850 pesos which I think we had to pay at BanReservas. It was a very simple process in and out in a less than 5 minutes.

    Chances are the driving school will do it all for you... VIP, run to the bank, arrange an appt if needed.

    I did basically that for my license. He went everywhere, drove w/ me to get the license, did everything.

    Windeguy,
    Your wife speaks good spanish ? So it would be easy for someone with that capability but for those of us without it is diffcult.


    Arrugula,
    There is a sticky somewhere on DR1 that details how to do it and as many have said the Office is in POP

    Personally I would use a "Facilitator" to do this but it will cost a little more. If you are over 65 you need an eye test certificate too! Dont forget you need a Cedula!

    Olly and the team

    Where can you buy a license without all the waiting, lines, chasing forms, testing, etc.?

    I just tried to renew my drivers licence, upv to it all went wrong it was dead simple. Go into a Ban Reservas branch and tell them you want to renew your licence asking them how much? I paid around 1000 pesos and they gave me two pieces of paper. a few days later I caught the guagua from Las Terrenas to SD, got a taxi and went to the Department of Transport. At the information desk they directed me to another desk where I handed in the two bits of paper and my driving licenceI also took with me my cedula, residencia and passport, just in case. They directed me to two rooms nearby where I was to have an eye test, you stand with your back to a wall and read letters they point to. HereŽs where it all went wrong for me, IŽd forgotten my driving glasses! They said - go and see an optician and come back another day- I shall go back soon.

    I

    Thats my suggestion of the driving school.... they did it all for me... I wasn't even allowed to hit the answer button on the computer!! They answered all the questions including getting a couple wrong to knock me out the 'genius' category.

    Costs a bit extra, not much and is rapido - no standing on line.
