By The Star Staff
House District 4 (San Juan) Rep. Víctor Parés Otero announced on Tuesday that the Driver Services Center (CESCO by its Spanish acronym) will go to the Parcelas Canejas community in San Juan to administer the driver’s license exam to dozens of young people.
The event is scheduled for today at the Parcelas Canejas Community Center starting at 8 a.m.
“Seeking to encourage our young people to start their journey to drive a motor vehicle on the roads of Puerto Rico, we have developed this activity where CESCO staff of San Juan, whom I thank, will move to the Parcelas Canejas community center to administer the learner’s exam, an important step in their social development,” the New Progressive Party lawmaker said.
“This is a tremendous opportunity for our young people in San Juan, so we urge all those who wish to get their learners’ permit to meet tomorrow Wednesday at the community center of Las Parcelas Canejas,” he added.
In order to take the learner’s test, prospective drivers must be 16 years or older, and minors under 18 must be accompanied by a parent and/or guardian. Also required is an unlaminated social security card, a medical certificate for a valid driver’s license (less than 30 days), as well as completing the application for examination (DTOP-DIS-255), and a birth certificate, also valid.
All youths under 18 also must present a school class certificate, a document to serve as proof of a residential physical address, a receipt of $17 from Internal Revenue, and stamps of $11 and $2.
