The Transport Authority says despite its best efforts, the last minute rush by public transportation operators to meet the March 31, 2016 deadline for renewal of their road licences, has affected the pace of examinations of public passenger vehicles, at its Lakes Pen facility.

The Authority says it began examinations of public passenger vehicles at all its facilities, two months earlier on January 11, 2016, to facilitate timely submission of road licence applications by the relevant public passenger vehicle licensees on or before the March 31, 2016 deadline. Additionally, the Authority amended the motor vehicle examination process, to allow operators to undertake their examination without any upfront payment for the services and facilitated off site examinations at locations selected by the Transportation Associations for their members.

These strategies were complimented by a media campaign, meetings with Transportation Stakeholders, communiqué to Associations and text messages to operators, to remind them about the timelines for submission of road licence applications.

Managing Director of the Transport Authority, Donald Foster says “adequate resources are in place to respond to the demand for motor vehicle examinations.

The early motor vehicle examination was part of the Authority’s thrust to provide more convenient and efficient service to customers.
