This driver’s license is a public document that can be obtained from the age of 16.

    What are the types of driving licenses in Colombia?

    The driving pass classes in Colombia are designed based on the type of car that the resident drives, ranging from motorcycles to trucks or private buses or public transport. All the categories are broken down below:

    This pass is perhaps the most common among Colombians, the B1 being specifically the one that is granted to drivers of cars, campervans or four-motor vehicles, vans and private minibuses. The B2 corresponds to the permit that is given to drivers of trucks and private service buses. And B3 for individuals of articulated vehicles and tractor-trailers. Users must verify in all cases that their vehicles are not for public use.
