Shortage in material for driver's licenses should ease mid September
Tax Administration Jamaica (TAJ) is reporting that the shortage of the material used to print driver's licenses should ease by mid September.
Applicants have been experiencing delays in obtaining the document, because of the material shortage.
According to the TAJ, there was an unexpected delay in the delivery of the material from overseas, however, it has not said what caused the delay.
The agency also says it is working with its overseas suppliers to have the supplies in Jamaica in a few weeks.
In the interim, the TAJ says individuals should use both their receipts and their expired drivers license as evidence of renewal.
It also says persons who have renewed their licenses will be advised by public
notice and telephone when they can return to the Tax Office to complete the process.
However, new applications will not be processed during this period.
The TAJ is also reporting that it recently received incorrect lamination pouches which resulted in supplies depleting sooner than anticipated.
