renewing drivers license

Post Posted: Sat Jul 24, 2010 12:32 am

Hi,
I thought some members would like this information.
I called the main number at COSEVI today about renewing drivers license.
They told me that you do not need residency that a passport is all you need and of course your old Cr drivers license.There was some confusion as to weather you could do this at BCR but, definatly at any COSEVI branch office.
Hope this helps someone.

What you say is correct but there is a condition...

Your passport must be within the 90 day tourist visa period. In my case, I received my folio number a year ago. Therefore, I have not left the country. My lawyer said this was OK. Let's not discuss this now. My lawyer advises me that my Resolution is in and all I need do is get an appt for my cedula. Here is the catch... if I don't have my cedula before Sept 1, COSEVI will not accept my resolution document and must get a new tourist visa stamp. Weird huh!
