Five month moratorium on the inspection of vehicles
On July 5th 2018, a five (5) month moratorium was granted on the inspection of motor vehicles.
This will allow citizens who own and drive motor vehicles sufficient time to ensure that their vehicles are properly inspected and the necessary inspection stickers are affixed to these vehicles, in accordance with the requirements of the MVTR Regulations.
It is anticipated that this moratorium will reduce the overcrowding of inspection garages and Transport Division offices around the country and alleviate a situation which has been causing anxiety and inconvenience to thousands of citizens.
The public is reminded that Section 27(11) of the MVTR Regulations states that: “27(11) A registered owner of a private motor vehicle or motorcycle,
public service motor vehicle, rental car, goods vehicle, omnibus or trailer who fails to produce the vehicle for inspection or drives the vehicle without obtaining an inspection sticker and certificate in accordance with these Regulations commits an offence and is liable, on summary conviction, to a fine of five thousand dollars.”
The Ministry of Works and Transport urges the general public to utilize the extension provided to ensure that their vehicles are in a road worthy condition.
