Vehicle registration deferred

The registration of vehicles due in the month of March has been deferred until mid-April due to the state of emergency orders proclaimed in response to the coronavirus. 

A notice from the Land and Transport Authority says the extension of the due dates for March vehicles has been extended until 14 April 2020.

“This means that all March vehicles can be registered in April 2020 without paying the late fee,” the statement from the L.T.A. said. 

While this means that the registration for vehicles for March has not been stopped, L.T.A. implemented certain measures to ensure the S.O.E. orders are complied with.

“From 9am to 2pm, only ten vehicles per hour will be inspected," the notice reads. 

For anyone scheduled to sit courses for their new driver’s license, only five people are allowed to do so per day.

The L.T.A. further states there will be no defensive driving courses for commercial driver’s licenses on Wednesdays.

Cashiers and the Authority's vehicle inspection division will also be closed at 2pm.

The Authority encourages the general public to use masks and hand sanitisers when visiting the office at all times.
