At last, a Mexican driving license

Mexican driving license

Only slightly more complicated to get than a US green card. After endless hours trolling around getting medical certificates and stuff, I was one of the lucky few to get to use the new written test in what was purported to be English, but which must have been translated using some widget on a PC, the results of which Her Majesty would not recognize. (my desktop translator came up with “Bristle the step” when I was trying to find out what “Ceda el paso” meant, — the message on Mexican yield signs). At least when you’re finished you get quite a cool laminated card. It even has my fingerprint covering most of the map of the State of Guanajuato — what a sense of power. I will show this next time I get hauled over for speeding on the New York State Thruway.
