Effective January 22, 2018, the Transport Authority will commence motor vehicle examinations for the renewal/re-application of all Public Passenger Vehicle (PPV) road licenses which expire on March 31, 2018. This is in order to facilitate the timely submission of road licence applications to finalize the renewal/reapplication process.
 
The early commencement of motor vehicle examination is part of the Authority’s thrust to provide convenient and efficient service to customers. Under this facility, licensees are not required to pay the vehicle examination fee upfront, as the fees will be collected upon submission of their applications for renewal of their road licenses.
 
The Authority is, therefore, reminding the owners of PPVs, that failure to complete the renewal/reapplication process by March 31, 2018, means that their road licenses would become invalid as of April 1, 2018. 
                                                                 
In the meantime, the Transport Authority is reminding PPV operators and applicants that they must meet the approved Transport Authority standards and requirements in order to receive a road license. These include colour coding, exterior markings, and vehicle age requirements. For further details, persons may contact the Authority toll-free at 1-888-991-5687, customer care 618-0959 or visit the website at www.ta.org.jm.
