Re: Obtaining a driving license with no education certificate

Until you have a permanent residence carnet its very unlikely you will be hassled for driving with a valid Florida license. Once you have a permanent residence it is necessary to get a Chilean license. There is no exchange. You have to show proof of education and do written and practical tests. Now ...

Re: Funny but useless account of trip to Chile

I should have twigged to the fact that this was Canada.

I was actually in Tillsonburg in 1978 or 79 when I was running car rallies in Southern Ontario.

I was out of the country 2012-2013 and applied for citzenship in 2014.

They only said verbally that the absence was not relevant.

The application was approved after an interview and then about 4 months wait.

Re: Citizenship, new requirement for time in country
