Drivers License in Chapala Mid-Feb?

Post by tombo on Fri Jan 26, 2018 7:33 pm

I see this post on the Chapala Municipal Gov's Facebook--https://www.facebook.com/GobiernoDeChapala/posts/2021847831388173--advertising a Drivers License event in Chapala on Feb 15. I'd like more info--en inglés. Is this only for renewals? Is there a driving test required? What qualifies as proof of your blood type? Gracias.

Thanks for posting that. When they come like that they usually do renewals and new licenses. A simple driving test and a more complicated written test that you need to study for. They didn't ask for any proof of my blood type-I just told them. Make sure you have the right type or you could have problems later.

From the FB page, sounds like it's going to be at the Vialidad (Transito) office in Chapala. "Para tu mayor comodidad este 15 de febrero podrás tramitar tu licencia de manejo, en la dirección de policía de vialidad municipal."

The picture says it is in “la Antigua Presidencia” which is the old town hall which is on the corner of Madero and Hidalgo. That is also the new location of the transitos. Their door is on the Hidalgo side of the building.

Where do you pay for the license. At the place or at a bank before hand.

We got our blood type from a local lab for our first Mx license. We had to show it.

The advertisement says, “know your blood type“. That is pretty clear.

Is a driving test required for this? I have no car but need a license for when I rent one. My US license expires soon and this Chapala deal would be an easier option, unless I'd have to rent a car to take the test.

Normally a drivers test, both written and road, is required for a first time Jalisco license.

Thank you saege007. I would have headed to the old location...didn't look closely at the publicity piece.

FWIW to anyone who cares, these events have sometimes been moving targets in the past. If I recall, the last one was scheduled for the Auditorio in La Floresta and got cancelled a few days before. It's on my calendar to check a couple days prior so I don't waste my time. And you can also at the phone number below (alledgedly!).

I'm bringing a sleeping bag! My drivers license expires in March so this is timely.

Before renewing my license two years ago, I paid or deposited in the appropriate account at a certain bank in Chapala, and brought the receipt with me when I renewed my drivers license.

I can not remember how I paid the first time I got a Jalisco license in 1997. I do remember that at that time as long as I had an up-to-date license from up North, I did not have to take a drivers test. I did have to take a short written quiz. but this was 21 years ago and things could be different today.

You can't swing a cat in the Transito office. .. no room for more than 4 people in there....I'm betting it will be in the main part of the building. Vamos a ver....
