Update of PT driver's license7 Replies
I want to share my frustration and alert any others who might also be getting ready to do what I tried. My upcoming birthday puts me at the renewal age for my Portuguese driver's license. I'm an American who exchanged my NY license successfully a few years ago for a PT cartao de conduçao. The freguesia people told me I could come in and take care of this, so I thought that a great idea, geven the lines at IMTT are very long, everyday. When I arrived, I had all the encessary paperwork, including the doctor's form my medico familiar filled out last week. As I was handing over documents I was asked for my BI or citizens card. I don't have either, but I handed over my Residencia document. I was told the system used by the freguesias do not allow for a Residencia entry, only the BI or CC and that I would have to go to IMTT. Although this didn't make sense to me, I left and will now make my way to IMTT tomorrow and join the waiting line. Has anyone else had this experience?
