Good day,

When you transferring a vehicle, do they check the series when the car was registered or the year of manufacture of the vehicle??

GTi Guy wrote:CHANGING OWNERSHIP OF A MOTOR VEHICLE IN TRINIDAD & TOBAGO

How to transfer your car in T&T.
You must register with the Trinidad & Tobago Transport Division any time you wish to buy, sell or change ownership of a motor vehicle. The registered owner and the new owner together must apply for a change of ownership within seven days of the sale or transfer. You must be at least 17 years old to change ownership of a vehicle.

Changing ownership of a motor vehicle and vehicle safety inspection can only be done at the Port of Spain, San Fernando and Tobago offices.


How do I change ownership?
The registered owner and the new owner must complete the transfer together and submit the following documents to the Transport Division office.

    • Complete Change of Ownership Form No. 11
    • Vehicle registration certificate and valid insurance certificate.
    • Valid national ID card or passport for both the registered and new owner.
    • Receipt of sale (where applicable).
    • Prescribed transfer tax and fee.
The application is processed on the same day.

How much does it cost?
The transfer fee is TT$10.00. The transfer taxes vary according to the (license) age of the vehicle:

New Transfer Taxes (as of October 1 2009):
Cars
$6000.00 - Under 2 years
$4500.00 - Over 2 years but not over 5 years
$3000.00 - Over 5 years but not over 7 years
$1350.00 - Over 7 years but not over 10 years
$0150.00 - Over 10 years

Procedure:
    • Complete the Transfer Form which is obtained at the information counter
    • Take the vehicle to the Inspection Shed
    • Return to the main office until called to the transfer counter
    • Pay at cashier (usually closes at 3:00 pm)
    • Done

Note:
    • Both parties must be present at the counter
    • Both parties must each have two (2) forms of identification
    • A Receipt with the new owner's name must be presented
    • Insurance in the name of the buyer must be presented (cover note will suffice)
    • Transfer must be effected within seven days of Sales Receipt

Licensing Offices in T&T where transfers can be done:
    Wrightson Road, Port of Spain
    By-Pass, San Fernando
    Milford Road, Tobago

Taxes are applied to date of 1st registration in Trinidad & Tobago (license plate series), not year of manufacture.

PCW is likely $3000 until after Sept 2019 when it becomes 7 years old. At 7 years, the fee drops to $1350.

Take a look at your registration date to be certain.

The cost is based only on your registration date. The entire series ended in September 2012. If your vehicle registration is from July 2012 it's now seven years old and the transfer cost has already dropped.

Can you transfer a vehicle if the sticker expired just a few days ago? Is this something they check for a transfer of ownership at Caroni licensing?

Didn’t see it mentioned in this thread that license office will keep your original receipt of purchase. So if you think you’ll need this receipt later, make a copy.

Did a transfer yesterday at Caroni LO with a car that had no inspection sticker. The inspection expired in February of this year, so I had the expired certificate but no sticker. The guy at the bay just checked the chassis number, didn’t bother with inspection sticker or whether expired or not.
