Minister assures availability of inspection stickers

Works and Transport Minister Rohan Sinanan says there is no shortage of inspection stickers.

The Minister’s comments follow a warning to motorists from senior officials in the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service (TTPS) and Licensing Officer, who noted that as of today, exercises would be ramped up throughout the country to target errant motorists.

Speaking in House of Representative on Monday, Sinanan sought to assure motorists that the inspection stickers are available at all Licensing offices throughout the country.

He was responding to an urgent question, as to whether the inspection stickers are available, in light of a warning regarding a $5000 fine for not having a sticker.

“At the Licensing Division, there are adequate stickers, books and complete packages for purchase by the owners of the private vehicular testing stations. All outstanding backlog has been cleared and stickers have been available for both private and commercial vehicles at all inspection centres and four licensing officers; Port of Spain, Caroni, San Fernando and Tobago. In that regard, any private vehicle owner going to any inspection centre must insist that they receive a sticker. Failure to do so, the vehicle owner has a duty to report the inspection centre to the Licensing Division immediately,” he said.

Asked if he was aware that persons who had their vehicle inspected last year have not received their stickers, Sinanan said he’s aware that there was an issue last year however, it has since been rectified.
