    I just took the test. They put you in a closet size room with the computer, take your phone away and no way to tip anyone. This is a Youtube of the test; . . . https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mlqqos8Abjw You have to get 14 of 20 questions correct to pass.

    For those that don't speak Spanish, the problem is they reverse the questions. For example, they might ask "is this permitted"? and the correct answer answer would be "no", but for the same test question, if they ask - "is this an infraction", the answer would be "yes". You have to understand what is being asked.

    I took the test about a year ago in Pto. Plata and I didn't see anyway to tip anyone either.

    au contraire, I rarely run into a situation where a properly placed "thank you note" doesn't move the wheels, most especially in govt situations. Obviously you cant wave pesos at the counter while standing in line but with a little forethought its not difficult to figure out. Ask for the "ejecutivo" consideration,. depending on what the "ask" is will determine the cost.

    Last year when I applied for my drivers license in Pto. Plata I needed to go to the Procuraduria close by to get a carta de buena conducta for my upcoming residency renewal because the online service wasn't working do to some computer change. I gave the gal my receipt from Banreservas and she told me to come back in 3 hours and it would be ready.

    I didn't have 3 hours to wait, so I went back to the window and discreetly tried to slip her 500 pesos to make it appear in 15 minutes. She got all nervous, started looking over her shoulder, and said, no, she couldn't do that.

    The days of being able to bribe your way through anything are fading. Just ask the politicians who took bribes from Odebrecht.
