    Are you going to study any branch of Engineering here in PR ?

    As far as traffic and vehicle information goes:

    The car must be inspected once a year in terms of emissions and general aspects of a car ( Functional headlights and such )

    When you are stopped by a police officer you will be asked for your Driver's license, and vehicle registration. ( No proof of insurance ) And depending on the reason, points are to be taken off, but as I said, It depends on the situation. I've never received a ticket in which im getting points deduced.

    Feel free to ask, I'll do some research to get you the correct information.

    damn emissions once a year.. we don't even have emissions in maryland. that kinda sucks. yeah i am originally from bayamon, but going to mayaguez because my best friend wants to study industrial engineering. i am personally studying accounting. so it works out pretty good. $50 a credit hours for one of the top 10 engineering schools in the nation. can't beat that!! so if i have 5 points on my maryland license, and get a puerto rican one will i still have 5 points? is insurance a lot down there? how likely is my car to get stolen because i remember that being a problem before..

    Stolen ? Honestly, I have never heard about anyone having his eclipse stolen. Never. I would be worried if I had a honda. Those are being stolen a lot. But eclipses are not the target of thiefs.

    I might be wrong with the emissions, but what I mean is that you have to get your car inspected once a year to check if the car is in optimal conditions to be used in public roads. Basically they look for funcional signal lights, license plate, and such, with the exhaust I think they measure the decibels and something else. I'll have to review that, but honestly I woudnt be worried for emissions. My insurance is about $500 a year.

    Bayamon still has a problem with car stealing, in fact, most of the cars stolen are recovered in bayamon, but as I said, they're only Hondas.


    As far as the license goes, you have 3 months to get your puerto rican license, I think you will just have to take a quick written test and done. I'll get more information on this too.

    maybe its just st mary's county then.. we don't have emissions. but i am glad about the eclipses not being stolen because my mom told me that having a convertible is going to make my car a big target

    Have you thought about the politechnical university too ? You might want to check it out. Its on Hato Rey and its much more expensive but i've heard its beating UPR in terms of Engineering courses.

    If you'll just be around San Juan, my main recommendation is to be careful for thiefs. There is alot of criminality in that area.

    There are alot of 2Gs around here, not many 1Gs, but most of them do not even know what DSM means. [At least the ones I know of]

    In that area, alot of people street race. Cops try to be strict, but our goverment is a bit corrupted. Many cops building false cases, taking advantage of people, etc.

    I do not mean to scare you, its a great island.

    Emission laws only harm you when you go to get your car inspected. If it fails to pass the inspection, you give the inspector 20 dollars, and you miraculously pass it. ;)

    You have to get your car inspected once a year.

    Have fun!

    Hey, I'm from Aguadilla, PR. I was wondering if there are any DSMers out there from Puerto Rico. If so, where are you guys from, what dsms do you own, etc. I'm currently studying computer engineering at the University of Puerto Rico, Mayaguez Campus. Do you guys know of any DSM Club down here in Puerto Rico?
