Driving licence renewal - medical test

Postby TorreDelAguila » Wed Oct 17, 2018 12:30 pm

Our driving licences are due for renewal.
Previously, the eyesight/reaction test required was done at Clinica Rincon (Nerja).
Clinca Rincon now gone, and taken over by Clincas Vithas.
Their testing machine in Nerja 'not working' (!), and they and their outfit in Torre del Mar distinctly unhelpful.

Does anyone know of any other place where the renewal test can be done?
Thanks.
Chris

Hola

In my experience, any Trafico is surround by "ancillary" services providing everything needed by Trafico in the way of vehicles and licenses. Therefore if you are near a Trafico walk around the block that contains Trafico and you should find whatever service you are looking for

Good luck

Just Google Centros de Reconocimiento de Conductores.

There are loads of them.

I think you have to go to one in the province that you live in. That may have changed. If so I use one in Almuñécar. Google Almasalud, Almuñécar.

They are opposite Cajamar Bank in Torrox Costa. They carry out the medical / eye test and handle all the paperwork for you.
They offer this service between 6.30 pm - 8.30 pm Monday to Friday. You dont need an appointment, just turn up.
