Belize & Ambergris Caye Help

Getting or replacing a Belize Drivers License

After my last move I somehow could not find where my Belize drivers license got packed and I searched high and low to no avail.  I happened to explain the situation to one of my traffic police friends and he told me exactly what to do to order a replacement.

I had to go to the police station and fill out a form and pay $8.00 then bring it back to the traffic department. This was so they had a police verified record on file of why I did not turn in my old license, which is a requirement to get a new one. Following that I went back to the traffic department ground floor of the San Pedro Town Council office and handed them the form. They immediately started processing my request and had me go upstairs to the cashier to pay for a new license.

Surprisingly from the time I found out what my next step was till I had my new license in hand was 20 minutes. I did not face one line up and I was able to use the same picture from the old one – I had felt like it could have easily been a mugshot day ha ha.
