Driving Licence

Many of us are applying for our Turkish Driving licence due to the clamping down on the 6 month rule. For those of you in the Ortaca area you no longer have to go to Fethiye , Mugla etc. There is a new Tourism & travel agency who will help you get it locally. They speak fluent German & English & a little Russian. For details, PM me to avoid problems with the advertising rule.

Re: Driving Licence

An English friend and I applied a few weeks ago and found the Ortaca system worked very well.
We were unaware of the new service you mentioned so tackled it alone with our limited grasp of Turkish but found the system quite easy to follow and completed the whole process in less than three hours.

This included the medical report, blood test, UK driving licence translation, notary, maliye office, criminal record check, fingerprints and police.

Armed with the excellent Fethiye Times guide to applying for your Turkish Driving Licence, and simply substituting the Fethiye locations with the Ortaca ones we found everyone very helpful.

The only difference to the Fethiye Guide is that one of the forms has to be obtained and signed at the Parlak Driving School opposite the Devlet Hospital in Ortaca (No- you dont have to take a new driving test!!) before the entire dossier is accepted and checked by the police and sent off to Mugla and then the British Consulate in Ankara before coming back to Mugla and then Ortaca!
That process can take between one month and three months. So far ours has been away six weeks.

I have not got the foggiest idea about the system you are using. Koycegiz must use a different one, because nothing leaves here.

I already had a notorised translation of my licence from 4 years ago so did the whole process in about 4 hrs and walked out of the Emniyet with licence in hand. (wallet minus 510 TL).

Re: Driving Licence

Maybe, as often is the case, things are different in different areas....and things change over the years (and days!!!!) although you would think that maybe different areas of the Mugla Region would be the same.

However my wallet was only lightened to the tune of 397TL so maybe thats a change for the better!

Re: Driving Licence

In Fethiye there is a wait for the licence as well. I waited about a fortnight but that was a couple of years ago now and I did hear that it now takes longer.
