Licence Plates needing to change to Rivas from Managua ?
I brought a car into Nicaragua last winter... and it seemed necessary to obtain the licence plates from the Managua office... ( totally crazy story in itself and a huge long time waste - but done )... But as I reside in San Juan del Sur... I was informed ( right or wrongly ? ) that I had to go to Rivas to get different plates as I live in that jurisdiction ? Or pay some huge fine if stopped by the police ? Is this true or not ?
Then also my basic insurance is up for the year renewal in January... do I need to go to the Managua office where I obtained it last year or can this be done in SJ or Rivas ? Where ? As I recall it only cost around $55 for the year.
