Yes, Roundy say they were given permission to do so, but I don't think that has translated into actual inspections yet for some reason.



Yep, last i heard was similar. I recently bought a pickup and would like to get this done sooner than later.

So Licensing Office POS today indicated they're not doing any inspection for T-registered vehicles "until further notice", since apparently their inspection pit sustained some damage in the earthquake.

They advised to go to Caroni to get it done.

Anyone tried T inspection at Caroni recently, since from what I remember they said they only doing heavy-T (trucks, etc) there?

So apparently after almost 2 months of the moratorium over, the ministry advertised in the newspapers (this week gone) a "PUBLIC NOTICE: Invitation to Apply for Vehicle Testing Station". Looks like people need to re-apply to be considered to be a Vehicle Testing Station for Light T Vehicles. There are no deadline dates in the ad so your guess is as good as mine with respect to when this new list will be out for inspection of light T vehicles.

On another note, has anyone been to Sando LO? Is it still utter chaos there with respect to vehicle inspections or has the crowds died down since the moratorium was issued?

The Ministry of Works and Transport has announced the expansion of Vehicle Testing Stations across Trinidad and Tobago.

The Vehicle Management Corporation of Trinidad and Tobago (VMCOTT) has been approved as an official testing station for the inspection of Motor Cycles, Private Cars not exceeding a Tare Weight of 2,270 kgs and “T” Goods Motor Vehicles up to 3200 kgs M.G.W.

Drivers are invited to visit the following VMCOTT locations to have their "T" vehicles inspected at the cost of three hundred dollars ($300.00):

- Head Office – Administration Building, #22 Beetham Gardens, Beetham Highway, Laventille, Port of Spain, Telephone: 626-1468/625-9028 or 626-1679

- San Fernando – Union Hall, Cross Crossing, San Fernando, Telephone: 652-0396

- Tobago – Old Farm Road, Scarborough, Tobago, Telephone: 639-2177

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 complete.
The Ministry of Works and Transport reiterated that motor vehicle/motorcycle inspection is a legal requirement.

In June a five 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, stated the Ministry.

so annual inspection of T vehicles at Licensing has been in existence for more than 10 years. The Gov't grants a moratorium owing to a rush for inspection which occurred because vehicle owners heard that a crackdown was coming, they even extended the initial moratorium giving motorists more time to get their vehicles inspected and added VMCOTT to the mix with 3 months to go still ( only adding them because as you said private garages not on stream yet) But " the grace period is sheit"? OK then :|

How can you say you're in the same situation when
a) the rush for private vehicle inspection has died (that was the main reason for the grace period )
b) you don't need a sticker, in the absence of same you need to keep your inspection certificate in the vehicle, yes that can be a pain in the ass somewhat but it's doable. When I did my inspection the LO told me stickers is for children, I never even bothered to go back for one because it's annually anyway so I just keep the cert.

I have work colleagues who paid for inspection at the LO in late July/ early August and got dates in November, around the last week in Aug in a meeting they spoke about it and I told them they could go to the LO early in the morning and ask the MVI if they can be inspected, within 1 week ALL of them were inspected, so it's not the system that is the issue here it may just be the vehicle owners

We really have a bunch of stupid fvukers in office- to date theres still no private garage that has been authorized to Inspect Light "T" vehicles, the Inspection PIT in Wrightson rd is not operating since the earthquake, and I have heard this morning that the only garage you can go to is Vemcott or wherever, however on that same note yesterday they were inspecting Private vehicles for Transfer at POS but they refusing to inspet "T"?? WTF really going on in Trinidad?
