Transport Authority reduces window for renewal of expired road licences

Published:Monday | June 20, 2016 | 6:15 PM

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.
