Instructions for filling out the Tofes Yarok when applying for your Israeli driver's license.

When applying for your Israeli driver's license you are required to fill out the 'Tofes Yarok' (the green form, as it once was).  These days of course you can do it all online (where the form is no longer green - but the name remains).

The form is accessed via the Ministry of Transport's website.  We have provided a translation of the online form which you can use as a guide when filling in the required information.

As you will notice, the second line of information is the license category you are applying for (A, B, C, D - motor cycle, vehicle up to 4 tons, tractor etc.)  Here is a list of those different categories and types of driver's licenses

In the Telephone Verification section (see below) you are required to enter your mobile telephone number, and then re-enter it, for verification purposes.  A text message with the verifcation code will be sent to you via SMS or via Voice messaging as per your selected preference.
