Driving license: check if you are one of the Colombians who have to renew it

If you have a driving license with an expiry date between January 1 and January 31, 2022, or which does not expire, or it is an indefinite license, be aware that it will no longer be valid until June 20. That day ends the period the Constitutional Court had given it to renew.

,You must ensure that you are registered with RUNT, the unique national traffic registry; Step number two, you should make sure you are protected from fines and traffic violations,” said Álvaro Quiroga, Runt operations manager.

To verify your driver’s license expiration date and safe and secure account details, you must enter the Runt website:

Quiroga explained, “Step number three, you have to go to a driver identification center and pay a fee for a physical, mental and motor coordination test and of course pass it.”

Lastly, you will need to go to the transit agency of your choice to renew the license. 76% of driving licenses that must be renewed are for motorcyclists, 24% for private vehicles and close to 1% for public service.

“On June 21, in any operation carried out on the roads of our country, vehicles in which the driver does not have a driver’s license will be immobilized,” stressed Eduardo Enríquez Caideo, Deputy Minister of Transport.

In addition to the suspension, they will also impose a citation that carries a fine of $309,336.

“We have done all the work in the Ministry of Transport to increase the hours of attention to citizens in the form of a competition, so that even on Saturdays and Sundays they can do their renewal and their medical examination and this is not a hindrance,” said the Deputy Minister couple.

According to the National Road Safety Agency, 42% of the people killed in road accidents last year did not have a driving license, due to which renewing it is more of a responsibility than a process.
