Approved mobility law reform hands Imoveqroo authority to issue state driver’s licenses

Riviera Maya, Q.R. — As of early January, the Mobility Institute of Quintana Roo (Imoveqroo) will be in charge of issuing state driver’s licenses. Rodrigo Alcázar Urrutia, the Director of Imoveqroo said after a recent reform to the Mobility Law was approved, municipalities will no longer be in charge of those licenses.

It will be around January 4, 2024 when Imoveqroo officially takes over the task and the 12th when they begin issuing them. The state is currently working on the guidelines and prices that will apply with the change.

Instituto de Movilidad (Imoveqroo) head Alcázar Urrutia said for the most part, everything will remain the same for first time and renewal licenses. However, one change they have already decided upon is the elimination of the one-year private license.

He says driver’s licenses for private vehicles will be issued only for two or five year periods, whereas driver’s licenses for public vehicles will be issued only for a two-year period.

Regarding the costs of the license, he said those prices were set by the municipalities and are likely to remain the same with the January 2024 change.
