The mandate allows the representative to submit and track the progress of the principal’s application(s), but not to sign documents instead of the principal.
Any administrative procedure undertaken at the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Office by a third party must be accompanied by a mandate signed by the principal and by supporting documents showing proof of these persons' identities.
Documents must be in French or if they are written in a foreign language, be accompanied by a translation into French, by a sworn translator at the Monaco Court of Appeal or a French Court of Appeal.
Where necessary, translations can be made in the country issuing the documents to be translated. In this case, they must be legalised or apostilled. If the country issuing the documents to be translated is a signatory to the Hague Convention of 5 October 1961, the apostille for the sworn translation can be requested directly from the Court of Appeal where the translator is registered.
If the issuing country is not a signatory to the Hague Convention, diplomatic or consular legalisation of the translation will be required. The list of sworn translators in the Principality of Monaco is available from the Monaco Court of Appeal, while the list of sworn translators at the French Court of Appeal can be found on the following website: www.directory-sworn-translator.com
