By The Star Staff

Dozens of young people took and passed the apprenticeship test to drive, in a supervised way, motor vehicles on the island’s roads, during a service fair held on the grounds of the Baptist Church of Los Angeles, in the La Marina urbanization, in the municipality of Carolina.

From the early hours of the morning, dozens of young people took the exam which was administered by personnel from the Driver Service Center (CESCO) of the Carolina Region.

Among other services provided were workshops on road safety, prepared and given by the Traffic Safety Commission, as well as talks by the Fire Department Bureau.

Also present were personnel from the Department of Health and the Administration of Mental Health and Anti-Addiction Services (AMSSCA), among others.

The initiative was from the senator for the District of Carolina, Marissa ‘Marissita’ Jiménez, who seeks to bring the services of central government agencies to the communities to facilitate the interaction and continuity of the services provided.

“We are always looking to support our residents, bringing the services provided by the various central government agencies and public corporations to the communities of the Carolina Sensory District. One of the things that we have always been asked for is the administration service of the driving test in its learning modality. Dozens of young people took advantage of this opportunity and now they are one step away from owning their license,” said Jiménez.

The requirement to take the learner’s exam is to be 16 years of age or older, under 18 years of age must be accompanied by a parent and/or guardian.

You also need an unlaminated social security card, medical cer3tificate for driver’s license, complete the DTOP-DIS-255 application, valid birth certificate, minors under 18 have to present a school certificate, and a document that shows residential physical address that is not more than two months old, among others.

Also, a receipt of $17.00 from Internal Revenue, a stamp of $11.00 and another receipt of $2.00 must be presented.
