    Get a letter of Good Conduct, pay the Banreservas bank the DL fees, then go take the DR Exams (Written and Driving) and hang onto your Canadian License and drive on that until you pass..not too hard

    I think you are wanting the easy way out (although the written exam which is 20 questions and the practical exam is a 5 min drive around the baseball diamond) i have been told you can go to Santo Domingo to Canadian embassy and get the approval letter that allows you to get the dominican license.
    Contact the embassy in SD

    You go to the Canadian Embassy and get the letter that says your licence is valid ( you pay for this) , then you have to have this letter translated if it's not in Spanish, get it legalised ( pay a fee and taxes) then once you have these go to the licencing ministry with your tax receipt and paperwork. They will give you an eye-exam, blood test if your blood type is not listed on your residency or cedula, take your picture and 30 minutes later you walk out with a Dominican drivers licence good for 4 years.

    We just got ours. We went to the Canadian consulate in Puerto Plata and had our QC driver licenses certified. It took a couple of hours, but it depends on the consul availability. With certifications in our hand we went to Santo Domingo, paid the fee at Banreserva and then at INTRANT office got a small blood test to determine the blood type and that was it. They gave us the Dominican Republic licenses on the spot. No other medicals or anything else was necessary. At 11AM we were on our way back home.
    Good luck.

    Hi Bob,

    Is this valid when you are on a Temp work Visa as well?
    Thanks
