There is a small break for those who lose license

Persons with a Costa Rican driving license are getting a break in the event their document is lost or stolen.

The transport ministry said Monday that all that is required is a 5,000 colons fee (about $10) and a cédula to effect a replacement.

That means a blood test and a medical exam are
not required if the missing license still is valid.

However, if the cédula vanished at the same time as the license, the driver has to get a new one first before applying for a replacement license, the ministry said. Costa Ricans would do that at the Tribunal Supremo de Elecciones.

Foreign residents would have to get a new document from the Dirección General de Migración y Extranjería.
