LICENCING OF VEHICLES

INSPECTION OF VEHICLES
Before a vehicle is licenced it must be inspected by the Licencing Authority or an inspection agency. You may contact the Licencing Authority (1-869-467-1359) for a list of inspection agencies. Vehicles under one year old are inspected by the Licencing Authority before they are first used on the road. Subsequent annual inspections are performed at an inspection agency. All other vehicles must be inspected by an inspection agency. On completion of the inspection, the owner is issued with a Vehicle Inspection Report.

ISSUE AND RENEWAL OF A VEHICLE LICENCE

To complete the licencing of your vehicle, you must take the Vehicle Inspection Report and proof of valid insurance to the Inland Revenue Department. After payment of the appropriate fees, you will be issued a self-adhesive decal which is to be affixed to the windscreen of the vehicle as described by the Licencing Authority:

(a) in the case of a vehicle with the steering wheel on the left side, the decal must be placed on the top right hand corner of the vehicle’s windscreen;
(b) in the case of a vehicle with the steering wheel on the right side, the decal must be placed on the top left hand corner of the vehicle’s windscreen.

 

TIPS
  • The Inland Revenue Department accepts Cash, Personal and Manager’s Cheques, Bank Drafts and Postal Money as forms of payment.  Standing Orders may also be arranged. Taxpayers are asked to note that dishonoured cheques attract a fee of EC$146.60.
