Persons seeking to conduct any transactions at the Licensing Division must utilize the online scheduling appointment portal at https://licensingappointment.mowt.gov.tt/. Customers are strongly encouraged to explore all available time-slots at licensing locations nationally if your preferred location is unavailable.

Additionally, persons are reminded that a proof of address (utility bill no older than three months) is required to complete a licensing transaction.
