The Transport Authority will open motor vehicle examination facilities on Sundays during the month of March, 2017.  This is to facilitate the continued examination process of Public Passenger Vehicles (PPV) to meet the licensing renewal/reapplication deadline of March 31, 2017.
Acting General Manager of Human Resources & Administration at the Authority says that the various examination facilities across the island will open from 9am to 5pm on Sunday, March 19 and 26, 2017

On Sunday, March 19, 2017 customers may access examinations at the

  • Northern Regional Office, Tower Isle, St. Mary; and
  •  Lakes Pen, St. Catherine pounds

Additionally on Sunday, March 26, 2017, the following pounds will provide services:

  • Lakes Pen, St. Catherine  
  • Montego Bay Transportation Centre, Barnett Street, Montego Bay                          
  • Hatfield Pound, Manchester         

           
The extension of opening hours for 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 motor vehicle examination fee upfront, as the fees will be collected upon submission of their applications for renewal of their road licenses.  The Authority is urging operators to apply for their road licence on time and avoid paying the late fee which takes effect April 1, 2017.
