Re: Driving

Yes, it is a pretty general requirement. For example if you look at the Europcar site in the UK it states: If you are renting outside of the country your licence was issued in, if you driving licence is not written in the English language and /or the characters cannot be read in the renting country,...

Re: UK v Greek Driving Licence

I got the following reply to my email to Ask Police, my emphasis in red: Thank you for your email.

Re: Dermatologist

Yellow pages for Rethymno only lists 3. The rest are mainly in Heraklion. You could try phoning them. If you have to come to Chania you could try Spyros Gramvousakis. I found him quite good and other friends have used him. Perfect English.

Re: UK v Greek Driving Licence

...Discovered to my chagrin this morning that only applies up to the age of 70! After that, driving a car not owned by you is illegal unless you are specifically covered by the insurance for that vehicle... Thanks for that information, Bob. I wasn't aware of that either. Having just hit 72 I can't ...

Re: Taxisnet up?

On 10 April ekathimerini reported that it would be operational the following week for 2017 submissions so I assume it has been open since at least 20 April, possibly earlier. Cut off was reported then as the end of June but sometimes there are extensions.

Re: UK v Greek Driving Licence

Having read my post again, I think the following statement in it is probably NOT correct, my highlight in red: ...As far as I can see anybody who continues to drive in Greece on a valid UK licence for an extended period, even if they are permanently resident are not breaking any law... It is against...

Re: UK v Greek Driving Licence

No it doesn't have to be renewed before its validity expires. The Directive currently governing EU driving licences is DIRECTIVE 2006/126/EC . The Directive came into force in 2006. Member states had until 19 January 2011 to transpose its requirements into national law and until 19 January 2013 to a...

Re: UK v Greek Driving Licence

Issuing of EU driving licences is governed by an EU Directive and the laws in all member states are harmonised with that Directive. It's intention is that you should register for a licence where you are permanently resident. Member states can only issue licences to an address in that state. The rule...

Yes. You can pay it in cash over the counter at any bank, if you want to, exactly how you pay it at the post office. Personally I prefer to pay online as others have said.
