Driving License

Copies of all above documents (copy station available on site)

The Driving license section is in Building 2, to the left of the main building. At the information desk, hand in your documents (photo copy station available outside if needs be), they will book a training time/video presentation for you. If you require BOTH Motorbike and Car license, specifically ask for that, as they will issue two separate licenses for those categories. After training you will do some quick reaction tests, then pay your fees, have your photo taken and wait for your license. The procedure in the Land Transportation Office is normally rather quick.
