Delay in processing of drivers' licences
TAX Administration Jamaica (TAJ) yesterday advised members of the public that they will encounter delays with the processing of drivers' licences at its revenue service centres islandwide.
The delays were blamed on the supply of incorrect lamination pouches received earlier, which caused supplies to be depleted sooner than anticipated, a TAJ release said. This, it added, will cause a delay in the delivery of supplies, which is done to order.
Supplies of the lamination pouches, said the TAJ, are expected in the island by mid-September. In the interim, motorists should use both their receipts and expired drivers' licences as evidence of renewal.
In addition, the TAJ said persons who have renewed their licences will be advised by public notice and telephone when they can return to the tax office to complete the process. Persons applying for new drivers' licences will, however, not be processed during this period.
The Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF), according to the TAJ, will be working with the TAJ to facilitate motorists during this period.
