Since Friday, about 22,000 owners of vehicles with plates ending in the number 2, risk a fine of ¢20,000 for continuing to drive with their old plates. Last year plates were changed for those ending in the number 1.
Vehicle owners can make the change personally at offices of the Registro Nacional or online through www.rnpdigital.com. Additionally, the process can be done via Correos de Costa Rica, but the cost goes up ¢5000. Replacement costs ¢15,000 and requires the return of the old plates and that the owner present their valid cedula.
