Driver’s license fraud

The Ministry of Public Works has warned that unscrupulous people are charging more than RD$2,000 for fake driver’s licenses. Deputy Minister Mario Holguin, who is in charge of the Transit Department, asked citizens not to let themselves be swindled as the false document is not valid, and will be seized by authorities as soon as it is detected. Holguin said that driver’s licenses are issued quickly, efficiently and at a moderate cost, without intermediaries. Licenses are issued at the Ground Transit Department, as well as at Multicentro Churchill, on Winston Churchill Avenue, Multicentro La Sirena, on Charles de Gaulle Avenue, and in Azua, Santiago, and La Romana.
