In keeping with the nationwide mandate to implement and maintain preventive measures to limit the spread of COVID-19 (novel coronavirus), the Transport Division (Licensing), will continue its schedule of services at all locations. Persons conducting transactions at the Caroni, Port of Spain and San Fernando Licensing Offices are asked to be guided by the list of services and the dates of services listed in the tables below, which will be implemented until further notice.

Service will continue at normal working hours at all Licensing locations (Monday- Friday, 8 am to 4:15 pm); however, the Officer in charge reserves the right to implement measures where necessary to mitigate congestion.

The Ministry of Works and Transport thanks the general public for their continued patience and cooperation during this period.
