Imoveqroo issued driver’s licenses may not be recognized outside state

Riviera Maya, Q.R. — Reports of fines continue to surface for Quintana Roo drivers issued licenses through Imoveqroo. The state-run agency took over the task of issuing municipal licenses in early January.

In the past few weeks, numerous Quintana Roo drivers have been fined while driving in neighboring states. The fines stem from the lack of legal recognition of the Mobility Institute in Quintana Roo (Imoveqroo) issued licenses.

Deputy Jose María Chacón, President of the Mobility Commission, says the states issuing the fines are in error and that the licenses Imoveqroo issue are legal. He considers it “a mistake” that the neighboring states of Campeche and Yucatán do not accept the licenses issued in Quintana Roo by Imoveqroo.

The lack of recognition derives from the fact that the licenses are not issued by the Secretariat of Citizen Security (SSC) or the Traffic Directorate of Quintana Roo, as occurs in other states.

However, Chacón says Imoveqroo has been empowered to issue driver’s licenses in the state of Quintana Roo and the licenses are ligament.

In a very brief statement, the Instituto de Movilidad del Estado de Quintana Roo posted “in the face of an alleged misinformation operation detected on social networks, IMOVEQROO informs all Quintana Roo licenses are valid throughout the national territory, in accordance with Art.52 of the Mobility Law which states that driver’s licenses issued by IMOVEQROO are valid throughout the country and are even one of the safest as they have elements and holograms that guarantee it.

“Driver’s licenses are processed personally in the offices already established by the municipalities, since their data is validated, their digital voice prints, biometric fingerprints, facial recognition, in addition to the digitization of their documents are recorded.”

Attempts by Riviera Maya News to contact Imoveqroo for additional clarification have gone unanswered.
