The Ministry of Works and Transport is expanding Vehicle Testing Stations across Trinidad and Tobago, to include the Vehicle Management Corporation of Trinidad and Tobago (VMCOTT).

A statement by the ministry Tuesday morning says that VMCOTT has been approved as an official testing station for the inspection of motor cycles, private cars not exceeding a tare weight of 2,270 kgs and “T” goods motor vehicles up to 3200 kgs M.G.W.

The ministry says VMCOTT locations will inspect "T" vehicles at the cost of $300.

The ministry says persons desirous of having their motor vehicles inspected are invited to contact the offices of VMCOTT to schedule an appointment.

Walk-ins will also be accommodated on a first-come-first-serve basis.

On July 05th 2018, a five-month moratorium was granted on the inspection of motor vehicles.

This moratorium will provide drivers with sufficient time to ensure that their vehicles are properly inspected, and the necessary inspection stickers are affixed to their vehicles, in accordance with the requirements of the Motor Vehicles and Road Traffic Regulations.

The five-month moratorium will expire on December 31st 2018.
