Appointments for DP renewal booked till January?

Postby redmanjp » December 1st, 2021, 10:42 pm

Is licensing still doing DP renewals by appointments only?

I went on their website and apparently all of December and several days in January seem to be booked!

So someone who's DP expiring next week have to wait that long? Not asking for me but my dad wanted to know how to make an appointment to renew his.

Yes it is booked. Yes, he will make the appointment Online.
Try checking early mornings, at different locations, sometimes something opens up.

I went to the sando office last week to collect a certified copy. I had an appointment for 830am. Got there and had to line up. The cashier didn’t show up until 9am so everything was delayed because apparently there is only one cashier. After they opened the gate the person in charge made 3 lines. One for certified copies, one for transfers and one for permits. So of course there was mass confusion with everybody trying to figure out which line was for what. Total chaos in the hot morning sun.

Had an appointment last week after making an appointment in August for a renewal. Yes approximately 4 months i had to wait. My permit expired September.

Process was pretty smooth once you had all the documents (old DP, application form, appointment confirmation and utility bill). I was in and out within an hour.

And yes. they validate your appointment, manually and digitally. You're supposed to walk with your appointment confirmation printed.

https://tt.loopnews.com/content/driving ... -extension

The Licensing Division of the Ministry of Works and Transport (MoWT) has further extended the validity of documents issued by its office in light of the continued impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on its operations.

This is applicable to driving permits, taxi driver licences, badges, certificates or other documents which expired on or before July 31, 2022. They are deemed valid until August 1, 2022.

Besides, any transfer of vehicle registration required to be completed on or before July 31, 2022, may be completed on or before August 1, 2022.

Members of the public are asked to pay particular attention to the dates specified in this document.

Please be guided by Legal Notice No. 7 and 8 of 2022 and sections 19(8) and 61B(2) of the Motor Vehicles and Road Traffic Act, Chapter 48:50, which were operationalised by section 7 of the Miscellaneous Provisions [2019 Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV)] (No. 2) Act, 2020.

Persons seeking to conduct any transactions at the Licensing Division must utilise the online scheduling appointment portal https://licensingappointment.mowt.gov.tt/.

Customers are strongly encouraged to explore all available time-slots at licensing locations nationally if the preferred location is unavailable.

Additionally, persons are reminded that proof of address (utility bill no older than three months) is required to complete a licensing transaction.

The accepted forms of proof of address include a cable bill, home internet bill, electricity bill (T&TEC) or water bill (WASA). If a customer does not have a utility bill in their name, he or she is required to produce a letter of authoriation from the owner and a copy of their national identification card.

You know I think it have a scene where even though your license valid...you have to pay the high renewal fee when you go to renew. Like say many people eh renew their license since 2019....and the license office keep saying your license valid until xyz....

When you go to renew eventually you getting hit the 750 or 1500 or 2000 fee for taking such a long time to renew. Even though its not fault of yours.

I can't remember what the different tiers of fees are

This is what I referring to.
Many people have to pay the $875 fee as it is now.

And with this new extension and limited slots to renew....people could find themselves having to pay the 1750 fee to renew. I don't think they are waiving that renewal fee

If you failed to renew before the onset of the pandemic then you have to pay. You cant expect to walk in with a dp that expired since 2018 and have fees waived. The policy is from May 2020 if I recall correctly

There are many people who would have had to renew in the timing when the pandemic now started.
And since then have never risked going into license office and haven't gotten an appointment. My mother license expire March or April 2019 and she's 70 so we didn't want her going anywhere unnecessary. For the last 6 months I trying to get an appointment online with no luck.


I don't think people over 65 have to pay for renewals at all though

But it have ppl who legitimately didn't get to renew for whatever reason and getting surprised with those renewal fees.
