THE Transport Authority (TA) has commenced motor vehicle examinations for the renewal of all public passenger vehicle (PPV) road licences, which expire on March 31, 2019.
This, the authority said, is in order to facilitate the timely submission of road licence applications to finalise the renewal 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 motor vehicle examination fees upfront, as the fees will be collected upon submission of their applications for renewal of their road licences,” a release from the agency said.
The authority said the owners of PPVs that failure to complete the renewal process by Friday, March 29, 2019 means that their road licences would become invalid as of April 1, 2019.
In the meantime, the Transport Authority has reminded PPV operators and applicants that they must meet the approved Transport Authority standards and requirements in order to receive a road licence. These include colour coding, exterior markings and vehicle’s age-requirements.”
