Studies, universities, public examinations, etc.
Employment (certifying that you do not have any infectious diseases and are fit in medical terms).

For driving licence renewals, bring your ID card and/or old driving licence and a passport photo (if you have one, if not we can take one of you here with our webcam free of charge). We have a direct link with the Directorate-General for Traffic, and we can issue a certificate stamped by the Ministry of the Interior that authorises the applicant to drive up to three months.
This authorisation must be carried with the expired driving licence.
You should receive the original licence by post at your home address within one month. Should you not have received it within three months, you can call us or the freephone (060) to find out what could have happened. Clínica San Francisco is not responsible for the delays in the issuance of the licence, as from the moment we issue the certificate, the process is in the hands of the Directorate-General for Traffic and the Post Office.
Our opening times for processing driving licences are from 10 am to 1:30 pm (Monday to Saturday) and from 5 pm to 8 pm (Monday to Friday).
