Transport Authority reduces window for renewal of expired road licences
The Transport Authority says as of August 1, it will reduce from three years to one, the period within which the operators of public passenger vehicles can re-apply for an expired road licence.
This means that a road licence will also become invalid one year after it expired.
The Transport Authority says once a road licence becomes invalid, the holder will be required to submit a new application, provided that the route and/or licence type is available, at the time.
According to the Transport Authority, the decision to reduce the allotted timeframe for the renewal of expired road licences is part of a renewed thrust to increase the availability of licensed public transportation to meet the growing demands of the commuting public.
