DRIVING IN PERU
Foreigners with a Tourist Visa can drive with their foreign license for a maximum of 6 months. Once they get their Peruvian Resident Card, they have to get the local Driving License.
A Driving license exchange can be requested for Spanish citizens. Other foreign residents have to take the local driving test. There are 3 parts: a medical exam, a theory test and the driving test. Foreigners with a valid foreign license can be exonerated from the Driving test. Lima Relocation Services can assist you with this procedure.
OPENING A BANK ACCOUNT IN PERU
Most Peruvian Banks will request the foreigner to have a Resident card in order to open a Bank account in Peru.
