Any idea what the process is for getting a scooter permit? I've lived on the island for over a year, but don't have a Belizean license yet. How long will it take?

A drivers license doesn't take long to get....fill out an application, go get two pictures and take a lame test....issued the same day you past the test. Permit for a scooter doesn't take as long as for a golf cart.

I'm happier than a pig in s__t...a foot on the sand...and a Belikin in my hand!

So...less than a year? Maybe a month? Just looking for an approximation before I buy one...

Hey girl, good seeing you around.
Drivers license you get the same long as the day you go you have everything they require. They require Belize Residency (or proof of business ownership or land) and doctors eye exam along with $50.

I was told 6 months when I was stopped by police and offered up my Ontario license (that I'd been using for 4 years, oops.)
