Starting today, Monday 26 October, citizens will need to show proof of address, in order to conduct business at the licensing offices.
According to a statement from the Ministry of Works, some services will now require clients to provide a recent utility bill such as one for a landline phone, or from T&TEC, WASA or Flow.
The Ministry said: “If the utility bill or lease/rental is not in the applicant’s name, a letter from the owner confirming the applicant’s residence and a copy of the owner’s national ID card must be submitted.”
The proof of address provided should not be older than three months from the date of application.
Documents requiring the updated proof of address include drivers’ permits and endorsements; forms for registering a vehicle; transfer of vehicle registration; and notification of changes to a vehicle or to driving permit details.
