The Transport Control Department (TCD) issued a public advisory today, urging residents to avoid last-minute vehicle examinations, registrations and re-licensing this month, due to the public holiday on Friday, March 29.

“Our last business day this month falls on Thursday, March 28, with the examination and re-licensing period for 2,836 vehicles expiring between March 25 and 31, 2024,” a spokesperson said.

“While some customers may choose online licensing, a few might wait until the final week to examine and re-license at TCD. To avoid long queues, TCD recommends that customers initiate the examination process early and use the online registration platform at www.etcd@gov.bm for private vehicles —specifically private cars, motorcycles, and auxiliary bicycles.

As a reminder:

  • Vehicle examinations can be conducted up to 90 days before the expiry date
  • Private vehicle re-licensing [for cars, motorcycles, and auxiliary cycles] can be conveniently completed online at www.etcd.gov.bm
  • Commercial vehicles are exclusively licensed at the Transport Control Department
  • All drivers aged 18 and above must possess a valid medical certificate to renew their driving licence
