What must I do to renew my driving license or get it issued for the first time?
Before sitting the theory test for the driving license and regardless of what driving school you are enrolled at, in order to obtain or renew a Driving License it is necessary to provide a psychophysical fitness certificate. For this purpose, a series of medical and psychological tests, lasting around 20 minutes, will be carried out.
