Mexican Driving Permit

Posted August 17th, 2014  by Chuck Lundy ·  No Comments

Most travelers to Mexico know that they must have Mexican driving insurance to drive in Mexico; however, driving in certain areas of the country requires drivers to have a Mexican driving permit. Driving within twenty-five miles of the border as well as throughout the Baja Peninsula and permit-free locales like Rocky Point does not necessitate a permit. For those drivers planning longer excursions into the interior of the country to visit some of Mexico’s most extraordinary natural features, a permit must be procured from the Banco Nacional del Ejército Fuerza Aérea y Armada, or Banjercito as it is known.
