65% of Drivers No Registered With Cosevi

Have you filed your contact information with the Consejo de Seguridad Vial (Cosevi)t? If like most, probably not. In fact,
Despite that the deadline is “today”, the Cosevi says that only 455.000  (35%)of the 1.3 million licensed drivers have submitted the form.

(Form is included at the bottom of the this article).

The Ley de Transito requires every licensed driver to submit his or her contact information to the Cosevi, the information used for notices of appeals and any other communications from the drivers licensing office.

According to Deputy Minister of Transport, Silvia Bolanos, the public will be encouraged to register themselves. However, since there is no fine for not doing so, there is no real incentive for drivings complying with the law.

So, what happens if you don’t register? Nothing really.

As of today, the Cosevi will be faced with the task of assigning an email to all the drivers who have yet to register. The process, according to Cosevi officials, is to enter the information into the database and then publish it in the official government newsletter, La Gaceta. The Cosevi will them use “that” email to send you notices.

Registering your email is as simple as sending the a copy of the scanned form and ID to

The form can also be delivered personally at the Cosevi licensing office in La Uruca (San Jose), any traffic office or traffic (Transito) police or Riteve station across the country.

The form requests the name, phone number and ID (cedula or passport) of the license driver, an email, physical address and a signature.
