Losing your driver’s license is one of the main fears of any driver. What to do now? How can you fix it as soon as possible? In this article, I will try to give you all the keys to recover your driver’s license in the shortest possible time.
I lost my driving license, what do I do?
Yes, whether for stealing, theft or for a self-neglect reason, you can lose your driver’s license and it happens very often. It can happen to all of us and after all, you have just lost your card not your driving license in whole. Remember that the first thing is to do in case you have suffered a robbery, file the corresponding complaint to the police officer and file it in the Traffic Headquarters.
Then, in the case of robbery or loss, you must request a duplicate of your card in said Headquarters. To do this, you must present the necessary documentation in the Provincial and Traffic Headquarters.
Documentation for driver’s license duplicates
- The official application form for a duplicate of the card.
- A recent passport size color photo.
- Your ID, Passport or Resident Card in force.
- The duplicate rates demanded by Traffic (which in 2017 are $20).
Can I drive without a license or be fined?
If you have lost the license, it is not recommended that you drive again until you have your duplicate, unless it is an urgency that you cannot avoid. In fact, if an agent stops you and you do not present your driving license, the fine will be 10 dollars.

What if I lose my license points?

The problem could be more serious, but calm, you can recover it through a training course and the passing of certain tests.
