Required Documents:

 

VERY IMPORTANT THAT ALL SIGNATURES MATCH EXACTLY HOW YOU SIGNED YOUR PASSPORT OR CEDULA!

Revisados are issued by an authorized garage/tire store. We have 3 locations in Coronado, Tambor, El Llantero and Auto Centro and one in Gorgona. The Gorgona location is just past the entrance to Gorgona on the same side with a hardware and auto parts store. You will need proof of current insurance and a copy of your title. They will take several pictures of your car and also check the system for any outstanding violations. If you have any unpaid tickets they will not issue the new revisado until they are paid. See below on how to pay violations. The process usually takes about 20mins and costs approximately $20.

 

License plates are renewed yearly and each plate has a sticker denoting the month that it is due. You can only go for the Revisado starting on the 1st of the month that it is due, not before. If you fail to get your new plate in that month there is a $30 one time fine for economy cars and a $45 fine for larger vehicles.

 

This process applies to those cars registered in Panama city, to transfer the registration to your local municipality see Car Registration Transfer. Once transferred, license plates can be picked up locally as well as doing title transfers.

 

Once you receive your license plate, on the back will be a registration sticker taped to it. This sticker goes on the inside left part of your windshield.
