5. Mod Agend. IMT

all completed and signed.

They requested €30 euros a few days later, I paid and have received receipt and confirmation of the process.
Forgive my ignorance but what is a CRUE and Mod Agend IMT

CRUE is the residency certificate(CERTIFICADO DO REGISTO DE CIDADÃO DA UNIÃO EUROPEIA)
and Mod Agend IMT is this form:

But tbh I’m not even sure that last form is needed as it only came up at the start and I don’t see it in the process anymore. You see I applied on the day it launched and I think it was still in a state of flux. Anyhow, above is what I sent and its all working so far.

Thank you for that.

However, it still leaves the 'Certificate of Authenticity' unexplained.

By clicking on your link - about half way down is highlighted 'Form'. This opens up MOD 37 IMT and the first box to be ticked out of 5 is the one asking for 'Certificate of Authenticity'

I think you are over complicating things. If you look you will see two things about that form, the first is that the medical is already checked by them and the second is that the signature box is closed off. This tells me that this section of the document is their cross-check (official use only) and this form would have been completed at the IMT office by them, only now that we are online they are using that same form to process an online application. Its not well thought out and I suspect a new form or MOD will come out to reflect that but it is what it is.
As I said, I didn’t send one and its all working to plan. I shouldn’t worry about it and send the above docs asap before your 90 days runs out. If you have class C’s that you have had tests for and can prove it then you will need to do more to prove it. I don’t so can’t help there.

From another part of the IMT website I found this:

‘Certificate of authenticity of the driving licence issued by the issuing entity or consular services.’

Sounds like official speak for the info supplied to DVLA on request, or as mentioned earlier this:
https://www.gov.uk/view-driving-licence

Which is what they do, at IMT.

One other thing we were told by our solicitor regarding the new law which came into force on 01 Oct, in addition to applications now being made online, IMT are no longer accepting registrations of UK licences, you must change it. They will not do it after the end of the transition period, so if you haven't done it, do it now.

Re. some of the discussion above, we were told we need medicals, regardless of age, to confirm that point. You can do it at a doctors surgery if you have registered, or pay a private practice if you do not have a doctor yet, so long as they know what the medical is for in order to complete the correct form.

So can anybody tell me what a 'Certificate of Authenticity' is and where can I get one?

regards
I don't suppose they clarified whether it was Faro branch not issuing appointments or whether it was all IMT offices?

The lady at IMT Faro didn't say but it is fair to assume it was all IMT offices.

That really is a change if the entire process can now be done online. I had the feeling the first stage could, but that they need to see you in person after that to check identity ?

The link you have posted is about the new car number plate system that came into force this year - not about driving licences .

so what does this mean???The services of issuing, revalidation, replacement, second copies and exchanges of national and foreign driving licenses will now be available in the Citizen Spots.

The period of exchange of national and foreign driving licenses is also extended, after obtaining residence in national territory, without the need to perform the practical test, going from 90 days to two years.

Yes, that does apply and is on the IMT website under the Drivers / Exchange of Foreign Licence / Other Situations menu.

It applies to licences issued by countries signatory to bilateral agreements with Portugal, and to holders of international driving permits issued in accordance with the Geneva or Vienna Conventions on Road Traffic.

Other Situations
