No, the Transport Authority has made the provision for all road licences to be renewed before the expiration date. The licensing renewal period usually begins in Mid-February of each year and your road licence will be valid until the following year March 31st. For information on the specific date for renewals each year, please contact us at 876-926-8912.
Back year charges apply when a licence holder has been operating without renewing the road licence. Whenever a road licence is not currently in use, it is required that the licence be surrendered, otherwise one will be required to pay all fees for the amount of years the licence was expired if you wish to renew said licence. However, for Public Passenger vehicle licences there are restrictions on renewals after the licence has expired in excess of a year. Contact our office for details.
