A Honduras drivers licence is a spanish language thing, if you know Spanish fluently and if you do not sound like a foreigner then you stand a pretty good chance in getting you license the first day with in a few hours.

 

May need:

  • Passport.
  • Existing drivers license.
  • Familiar enough with the Honduras driver license laws to pass a simple written test in Spanish.
  • Physical Exam.
  • Eye exam.
  • Blood Test.
  • Two passport photos 1 3/8"x1 3/4".
  • They will thumb print and put on license and their records.
  • Roatan location to apply is just west of Coxen Hole.
  • Drive with a foreign driver's license for 90 days before getting a Honduran drivers license.
  • You can drive your car for about three months starting with the date that you arrive in Honduras.
  • You should carry your passport to provide proof that you have been in the country for less than three months. Once you are over three months it is best to just carry a copy.
  • Count on spending the better part of a day getting all these errands done.

May or may not need to do all or these no rhyme or reason as to why.

Honduras Driving Directions

Driving directions are great by local residents, that is if you are fluent in Spanish. If not get ready for a Honduras adventure that you will tell to your grand kids. That is assuming you make it back to where you came from before they are grown.


International Drivers License Honduras

Since 1949, when the United Nations sanctioned its use, the International Driver's License (IDL) has allowed International Travelers to drive freely throughout the world.

 

The U.S. State Department recently issued a statement through their "Tips for Foreign Travel" brochure, stating that more and more countries prefer drivers to carry an IDL as an accompaniment to their U.S. state-issued license. The IDL offers authentic international translations of pertinent passport and personal data to foreign officials.

 

Quote from the USA travel.state.gov Tips

It is illegal to drive without a valid license and insurance in many countries. You should check with the Embassy of the
country where you plan to reside, to find out more about driver’s license requirements. A listing of foreign embassies
and consulates in the U.S. is available on the Department of State’s website at www.state.gov/s/cpr/rls/dpl/32122.htm.
Foreign embassy and consulate contact information can also be found on the Country Specific Information for each country. Many countries do not recognize a U.S. driver’s license. Some, however, will accept an international driver’s permit. It is nevertheless a good idea to qualify for a local driver’s license as soon as possible, since international driver’s permits are not always valid for the length of a stay abroad, and often are only valid if presented in conjunction with a valid U.S. or local license. To renew a U.S. driver’s license, contact the Department of Motor Vehicles in your home state.

"If you don't feel like you're ready to get your license -

just because people are putting pressure on you,

don't feel like you have to rush into something.

Take your time, really feel confident and be ready.

It doesn't matter what other people say,

do what's best for you and makes you feel safe."
