Persons desirous of having their motor vehicles inspected are invited to contact the offices of VMCOTT to schedule an appointment. Walk-ins will also be accommodated on a first-come-first-serve basis.
Please take note of the following requirements:
  • Drivers are required to present their original Certified Copy, Insurance Certificate and Drivers Permit. Note: Any Engine or Colour change must be conducted at a Licensing Department and reflected on the Certified Copy.

  • The vehicle must be Engine, and Under washed.

  • The vehicle must not be sprayed with shock oil until the inspection process is completed

The Ministry of Works and Transport wishes to reiterate that motor vehicle/motorcycle inspection is a legal requirement. On July 5th 2018, a five (5) month moratorium was granted on the inspection of motor vehicles. This moratorium will provide drivers with sufficient time to ensure that their vehicles are properly inspected, and the necessary inspection stickers are affixed to their vehicles, in accordance with the requirements of the Motor Vehicles and Road Traffic Regulations. Members of the public are reminded that the five-month moratorium will expire on December 31st 2018. As the Government seeks to bring the incidence of road traffic accidents and fatalities down to zero, it is critical that drivers can provide proof that their vehicle is in a roadworthy condition.
