renewing my Jalisco driver's license ...

Post by Sherman on Mon Dec 25, 2017 10:11 am

Since it appears there is no longer an office in/near Chapala to renew licenses, I'm heading to Guad for the first time to get a renewal.

Information I need, and hoping someone has current info:

Must the renewal be done before the license expires, or can it be done afterwards without any negative consequences?

Is there a recommended time of day to get the renewal at the Guad office?

What paperwork do I need to take with me?

Can all this be done in one day?

I'm assuming I don't have to take an actual driving test???

Did I miss anything?

thanks ..... and happy holidays mariachi

I will not be much help here. Maybe 8 years ago when my Jalisco Drivers License had expired, I was told that I had a year to renew it But that if I waited much longer I would need to apply for a new license.

I have no idea whether the information I was given is still correct

Oh, Merry Christmas.

Take the following and two copies of each:

Old licence
Passport
Residency visa card
Current CFE or TelMex bill in your name
CURP

It is all done while you are there. You can either prepay at a local bank or at a bank near the facility. I would avoid letting it expire as they change the rules all the time. No drivers test required for renewal.

one more question .... Is the CURP # and the RFC # used interchangeably?
I've been asked in more recent years for a RFC #.

I'll take both #s in any event.

Thanks ... just checking.

happy Holidays

I just checked my CURP and RFC #s, which are exactly the same. There appears to be a relationship. But, since I will have both cards with me, they can choose.

That's interesting. Mine are not the same. The first 6 digits on both are your birth date then mine have completely different numbers and letters following.

Both cards start with letters that I know are derived from my name. Next are the birthdate numbers, then followed by more letters and numbers. Who knows?? ... as long as I don't have to go back up again and they take whatever # they want, I'm happy.

I just checked my Jalisco driver's license ... on the front, it states "RFC or CURP", and my RFC # is listed after that. So that means they will take the Curp or RFC #s.

So, that's good enough.

Thanks ....

IF they want the CRUP card, they want the new form not the old card??? You fill out the info online, and print the "new" CRUP on a sheet of paper rather than the little wallet card. Sorry I don't have the URL for the CRUP.

We have found the Las Aguilas office on Lopez Mateos to be more convenient than the downtown GDL office. EZPZ too. Nice people, not too crowded, easy wait.

The CURP and RFC are not the same, they have similar info but they are not the same,,,since they take either one it does not matter in this case but it will make a difference eventually ..

Can you give the address, our expired on Halloween but we need to get our renewed yet again, and since we have to change our phone bill again in my hubby's name we have to wait another month, since a lawyer here did not put my name on our lease.

Address? No, I have no idea what the address is. Did you try googling it? I can tell you it's in the Las Aguilas area of Guad which is on Lopez Mateos up by Plaza del Sol. Look for big bronze eagle statue. I think there is an IMSS office around there too. Sorry, that's the best I can do. Lots of parking in shopping area parking lots. 
Take UBER?

Las Águilas, is a bit north of the Home Depot on the OPPOSITE side of Lopez Mateos. Las Águilas is a big complex on both sides of L.M., so when you pass it on the HD side, just take the next retorno and you'll come to it.

The one just off Lázaro Cárdenas, near the big IMSS hospital at Plaza de Toros, has been described as very easy to do for renewals, also. I'll probably go there. Mine expired last August, I think.

One of us had an expired license, quite expired as I recall, and nobody even batted an eyelash. 

I think all your accents are correct! I missed Águilas.
