Re: Greek Driving Licence

Warrick wrote Yes. It's all done at the same site. Vehicle ownership change, driving licence change/renewal, driving tests etc. I'm not sure which building you would need to go to for the test. Immediately inside the gate is a long building to the right. I believe the office where you change/renew a...

Re: Greek Driving Licence

We took our tests for the over 74's last week. It took each of us about 7 minutes to drive around the circuit - a continuous series of instructions to turn right! No written test, no emergency stop, no parking. Just drive from the test centre car park and arrive back there 7 minutes later! We have ...

Re: Greek Driving Licence

Has anyone who is over the age of 74 taken the written exam to change from a UK licence to a Greek Licence. Gone through all the pain of the paper work 6 months, each visit a new request. She has run out of requests, I hope, and has told me to find a Lawyer who will translate the test for me. Quotes...

Re: Problems with Flash Player?

The BBC News web site reports it as an error with Flash but Flash was working properly. I suspect, but don't know for sure, that the BBC News web site is using some other feature, perhaps DRM, and that was not working because Media Feature Pack was missing. I have just connected to the BBC web site...

Re: Problems with Flash Player?

I have not had a problem viewing BBC via my WIndows 10 laptop.
I do not ever recall installing Media feature pack.
I do have the latest version of Adobe flash player.
I watch ITV and BBC via a VPN.

Re: Driving Licences

Eventually when the Officials sort themselves out (maybe 2021) I expect to take the 2 Driving tests, theory and practical as I am at that age.
In anticipation I searched to see if there were some examples of the Theory test. Found a great site

Re: Property Register declaration

And now I've gone to pay the fees online, but the payment code is 6 groups of 4 numbers, unlike other payments I make. Anybody have a clue which authority I'm supposed to pay? The Ktimatologio is not in the list.


Tax and then scroll down for the Cadastre

Re: Appalling weather

I feel very sorry for you folk in the West of Crete. Here, in the East we complain about the rain and the cold. But, from reports and videos in the Press I really sympathize for you folks. Much worse than we are experiencing. Hope that you are all keeping safe. When will it end?. I will not complain...

Re: Driving Licences

What a crazy Country we live in. The last few posts all refer to KEP processing licence and documentation. In Agios Nikolaos it is so different. Visit to Lasithi Town Hall. A rather Jobs worth lady (being polite) runs the Licence application Office. She gave me the documentation and instructions. To...

so as far as I can see there is no need to involve your accountant ... Jeffstclair wrote No need to involve even your Solicitor. It is so easy.

Re: Bicycles wanted! Comfy Sofa wanted too!

Pity you do not live close to Agios Nikolaos. There is a Shop selling house Furniture, 3 stories. We bought a great replacement mattress last year and a comfortable sofa three years ago.

Re: Appalling weather

Lots of people say, we need more rain. Be careful what you wish for. Do not worry, the rain has stopped. No more for a long time. How can I predict this? Today I purchased a new rather expensive umbrella. I guess that I will have to lend it to the wife to keep the sun off her head. If I clean the h...

Re: Annual property tax 2019 (Chania) (zones?)

think evansmr1 is wrong. The online calculator calculates the total ENFIA owed on the property. If each half of a couple owns 50 % of the property each pays 50 % of that tax. ful Perhaps it is the way that my Accountant presents the tax document, last year, as always, two documents, each with a due...
