Your Costa Rica drivers license could be used throughout Central America if transit authorities and road safter councils of the region can come to an agreement in talks next week.

The subject of a “one” license for the region has been under discussion since 2008. According to the director of Costa Rica’s Consejo de Seguridad Vial (Cosevi), Silvia Bolaños, the type of license, legal age and consent requirements are items being assessed,

Bolaños said that another aspect of the regional license is that it incorporate a chip that contains the driver information.

The director added that next week there is promise of decisions on the various agreements discussed the last several months.

One of the points important to Costa Rica is that the new “Central America” drivers license would continue to restrict a foreigner from leaving the country if he or she has a debt – unpaid fines – with the Cosevi.

Representatives of the seven Central American countries are expected to sit down on Monday in San José, with results of the meeting to be made public on Wednesday.

The creation of a “Central America” license eliminates the need for a separate license for each country.  The countries of Central America are: Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Belize, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Panama.
