OBTAINING YOUR DRIVER'S LICENCE

An applicant for a drivers licence must first be issued with a Learner’s Authority (permit) from the Inland Revenue Department. The applicant must be at least seventeen (17) years of age at the time of the application. You must have Proof of age (i.e.: passport, birth certificate or social security card). A Learners Authority is valid until the 31st December in each year. If the Learners Authority is received after July 1st in any given calendar year, the fee is reduced by fifty percent (50%). An individual learning to drive must have a valid learners permit and be accompanied by a licenced driving instructor. The cost of the Learner Authority for one year is EC $ 62.50. On the 1st day of July the fee is reduced to EC $ 31.25.

When the applicant is ready to take the driving tests, they must schedule a time with the Licensing Authority to take the written exam. Having passed the written exam you will then be scheduled for a driving (road) test with an examining officer. On successful completion of the driving test, a Certificate of Competency is issued and must be collected from the Inland Revenue Department, where after payment of the required fees, the drivers licence is issued.

To obtain a drivers licence you must first present:

• A valid learners authority,
• Two (2) pieces of ID (i.e.: passport, social security card, national identification card).
• Other supporting documents may be required.

It is illegal to drive a motor vehicle without a valid drivers licence. A Certificate of Competency is not a licence to drive.

TIPS
  • Payment of outstanding taxes and annual filings of financial statements, including tax returns, are due 3 ½ months following the end of the financial year of every company.
