Veils may be acceptable in photographs of applicants who, for religious purposes, wear a head covering that obscures their hair, with the only limitation that their full face must be visible from the hairline to the bottom of the chin so as not to prevent or make the identification of the person problematic.

* Special Cases

Representative: Where the documentation is not submitted by the holder of the driving licence, the person representing him/her must present his/her official ID card and a written authorisation of the holder to complete the procedure, specifying that it is free of charge.

Tests to be carried out: please refer to the back of the informative sheet.

The submission of documentation supporting the registration data (address) and IAE (trade tax) may be replaced by an express authorization so that the Directorate General for Traffic can verify such information by telematic means. For that purpose, the applicant must tick the appropriate box in the application form or fill in the express consent form available at the DGT’s website or at the Traffic Departments. If DGT does not receive valid information, the applicant must submit documentation in order to remedy this situation.
