Purchase of Motor Vehicle Licences has been extended to July 13, the Guyana Revenue Authority (GRA) said yesterday.
According to GRA, the sale of the licences was scheduled to expire on July 6 but a decision was taken to extend it by a week.
“Persons are urged to make use for this extended time and voluntarily comply. Persons who do not purchase their licences before the deadline will be subjected to an additional penalty of ten percent (10%) of the cost of the licence,” the agency warned yesterday.
After the deadline, the Guyana Police Force will be monitoring motor vehicle owners to ensure they are in possession of the relevant licences. Failure to comply with the July 13 deadline will result in charges being laid against defaulters, GRA said in a statement yesterday.
When applying for a new licence or renewing a motor vehicle licence, the applicant must present his Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN), Motor Vehicle Registration, insurance, Certificate of Fitness and the previous year’s licence (in case of renewal).
GRA also reminded that Motor Vehicles Licences can be renewed at any of its locations in Georgetown or any regional branch office.
Owners of minibuses and vans which are registered for the transporting of “goods” and were assigned the Alpha Digit “G” must present their vehicles for examination in support of their application, the release also noted.
“Similarly, vehicle owners who have changed the colour, engine or chassis of their vehicles must also have their vehicles examined when applying for a change of registration or renewal of licence.”
Goods vehicles and vehicles with changes will only be examined at the Licence Revenue Office (LRO) in Georgetown and at the GRA Regional Offices in New Amsterdam, Corriverton, Linden Anna Regina, Parika, Bartica and Lethem.
