The Dirección General de Educación Vial is setting up a driving course for people they call uneducated. The agency defines this as not having finished sixth grade in school.
But the agency will not take the word of a would-be driver. The individual has to bring documents from the appropriate regional education office and from the last school attended.
Foreigners have to bring similar documents from their home country.
The court begins March 2 in San José, Limón, San Carlos, Liberia y Puntarenas, the agency said.
