Rafael Valverde started this petition to COSEVI Director del COSEVI

COSEVI, the government agency in charge of driver's licenses, has decided to have its own interpretaion of the Transit Law. Under the transit law, people with a foreign driver's license and with an application pending for residency in Costa Rica should be allowed to obtain a Costa Rican driver's license. However, the COSEVI is forcing thousands of foreigners to leave the country every 90 days in order to have a valid driver's license. This practice defeats the purpose of section 33 of the Immigration Law which allows foreign nationals to remain in the country while their applications are pending. COSEVI is violating the equal protection clause for foreigners contained in Section 19 of th Costa Rican Constitution.
