That's good that they don't discriminate against the sight impaired as they do in some other countries.

erod, do you have a Dominican Cedula , as in being a legal resident in the DR?

(Others are correct in stating you cannot use a US license to get a DR license. You have to just go through the procedure here. )
hi, yes i have a dominican cedula. i will go through the procedure of taking the test etc. For some reason I thought i could just go there and swap my usa license for a dominican one without taking any test. thanks everybody for your response. i really appreciate it

I was looking for a driving instructor recently for my mujer. I was told 7000 pesos for the license all in. No need for a test, instructions or to show up for anything. Just go and provide a blood test.

My experience was sort of like that - a few yrs ago

I had to take the test - but I had an 'assistant' w/ me..... no road test

I never took a road test. My first license was "purchased in Santo Domingo" and renewed several times in Puerto Plata before it was found to never be in the system. Oh my.

So then I just took the video test, which I failed the first time because of the accent of the questioner which I could not quite understand.

Dealing with the people in Puerto Plata is actually a pleasure. They are very nice unlike the people in US motor vehicle offices.

There should be no problem for the OP to get a DR license.
