Chapter 48:50
Part V

INSPECTION OF MOTOR VEHICLES
27. (1) A registered owner of a public service motor vehicle,
rental car, goods vehicle, omnibus, tractor or trailer shall produce
it for inspection by a Transport Officer, annually as the Licensing
Authority may direct and shall, at the same time, furnish him with
such information as may be required including the following:
(a) the name of the manufacturer of the chassis;
(b) model;
(c) engine number and number of cylinders;
(d) year manufactured;
(e) factory number of chassis, body number or VIN number;
(f) maximum gross weight in kilogrammes;
(g) type of body.

so, however, that a registered owner of a private motor vehicle or
motorcycle where such motor vehicle or motorcycle is five years
old or more, shall produce it for inspection by an examiner
biennially, at such premises designated for that purpose as the
Licensing Authority may direct.

(11) A registered owner of a private motor vehicle or
motorcycle, public service motor vehicle, rental car, goods vehicle,
omnibus or trailer who fails to produce the vehicle for inspection or
drives the vehicle without obtaining an inspection sticker and
certificate in accordance with these Regulations commits an offence
and is liable, on summary conviction, to a fine of five thousand dollars

All of a sudden the car stop and no brake light....Man I fed up of these ppl..........hit them the charges.....they so lazy to change their blown tail light bulb

I think this is a ploy for others to ram into their car from behind so they could get money to do a body work........


Haha....i hate that sh!t.


I get that from a trailer truck on a dark road in the night. The smell of the burning rubber from his brakes was my only clue that he was slamming brakes.

The laws regarding tint is very subjective and carry a fine up to $4000. The law is that the windows or windshield must not be so tinted as to obscure the view of inside from the outside.

The problem is that magistrates tend to go with the police story, so if you could get a pic of the car and a licence officer to say that it isn't illegal helps your case.... Provided they catch you :)

Don' you find it unfair that big time CRVs,Audi SUVs and Prados have really dark tint and when you driving a simple old model civic the police single you out and make you take out the tint?do those big time vehicles get stopped and their tint ripped as well?its just a question

People follow laws only because of the possible repercussions of breaking them and not out of the kindness of their hearts. I'm not surprised by the questions whatsoever.

well i was talking to a police brethren and he say how if you wanna contest the tint allegation, they can impound the vehicle and direct you to return when a licensing officer is around to make it official then hand you a ticket. if you take it off when they ask you get away from the ticket.

however an officer also stopped me in the night under couva flyover to tell me bout my 35% tint so whatever...
