What A Driver's License Id Contains

A Belize City driver’s license acts as an ID card. It grants a driver the permission to travel within Belize in a motor vehicle. The owner of such ID must carry it everywhere when driving, and when applying for a renewal.

The IDs issued by the district's Town Traffic Departments are made of stock paper. The license applicant must submit two passport-size pictures. These will be pasted on the paper and then the card is laminated with a thick plastic covering. The ones issued by the city are computerized. The applicant is not required to submit pictures because the department takes these in digital form. The ID is a plastic card that is laminated by a thin film covering bearing security features.

Information to study for the written test may be gotten at the Traffic Dept. A person may take the written test within 1 week after having gotten this information to study for the written test. The practical test could be done the day after the results of this test are issued. The Traffic Inspector Officer conducts the practical test. Once the results are favorable, the license can be paid for, the pictures of the license owner taken and the ID handed over to him/her. Here are the License costs:
