Bonnie Posted December 17, 2015 Share Posted December 17, 2015 I went to David this morning to renew my driver's license and was turned away because the pensionado carnet I produced was a copy. I knew I had to have the original because the same thing happened to my husband, but I thought I HAD the original. They look exactly the same to me. (This was my fault for not taking both just to be safe. But it seems to me that the computer would have shown that I was duly visa-ed.) I went home to get my original carnet and returned nearly to be sent away again. Because I'm over seventy, I had a doctor's statement attesting to my health, but it bore the name "Bonnie Jackson Williams" while my passport and carnet said "Bonnie J. Williams." I pointed out that the passport number on the doctor's report was the number on my passport, but the woman didn't relent until I produced a U.S. driver's license bearing my full name. Be forewarned. Incidentally, she didn't ask for any information relating to my vehicles although I was prepared with absolutely everything. The good news is that I was in and out (the second time) in under 45 minutes. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
