The following information was provided
during a 9 November 1995 interview with the first secretary and
head of the consular Section at the Embassy of the Islamic Republic
of Iran in Ottawa.
According to the source recollection, the
sentence "3. The holder of this document should be age 23..." is
printed on the back of the Payé Eyck driver's
licence. The Payé Eyck is the official permit to
drive a truck, a bus or heavy machineries.
There are two types of driver's licences in
Iran: the class G licence (number 2), and the Payé
Eyck (number 1). In order to obtain a Payé Eyck,
a person must pass specialized exams.
For additional information on the class G
driver's licence, please consult Response to Information Request
IRN22275.E of 3 January 1996. Information on the Payé
Eyck driver's licence is available in Response to Information
Request IRN22276.E of 3 January 1996.
This Response was prepared after
researching publicly accessible information currently available to
the DIRB within time constraints. This Response is not, and does
not purport to be, conclusive as to the merit of any particular
claim to refugee status or asylum.
