A drivers permit is not a favour to the public. Please waiver expired permits AFTER the 31st of December 2020! Citizens like myself should not lose the permission to drive because of COVID times or your appointment system being booked. You are highly inconveniencing people like me to go to different regions to renew - that is quite unfair.
Dear Honourable Minister of Works and Transport, there is a drive to clamp down on non-compliant vehicles. Let me state that I totally support. That being said, I visited the Caroni office to have my vehicle inspected and was told there are no window stickers available. Would you be kind enough to have these stickers available for the motoring public. For the THIRD time, I will be returning for an inspection in the coming week.
Want to give congrats on the transport division digital way forward. Today i booked by first license renewal appointment online and it was pretty easy. Under 4min this was completed. Keep up the great work.
hey plz pave roads in arima (environs too)plz thank you
Please, PLEASE fix Crystal Stream Road. It's a MESS, and has been for far too long. Doesn't anyone from MOWT drive on that road?
What is stopping us from having smooth well paved roads in TT? How many more citizens have to die from accidents caused by swerving to avoid huge life threatening potholes .Why are our roads not lit with reflectors at night to help drivers and avoid accidents .?
Trinidad and Tobago when I hear people saying we living in a Banana Republic I does get vet because I love my country but today I must admit like this statement is true because you can tell me big Piarco International Airport have a carpark that when you park you have to pay at a machine inside the airport but to my surprise the machine not taking the New Notes we have, so how you paying to get out the carpark because most places you go now is the new Notes you getting. We try hard to make our country first world but is only a foolish making our country look.
hey thanks for patching up some roads in arima
Hi am looking for some help from anyone who can assist me in house repairs furniture appliances anything Will be thankful 3272653
A suggestion now that the vehicle register has been digitized and owner contact information is being updated - If your vehicle is being towed, the police to be able to send notification to you via email and/or sms using their ttps/mowt portal, that your vehicle has been towed (and not stolen).
What's going on with the online licensing office for appointments.....no available dates, what's up with that?
