The Department of Vehicle and Drivers’ Licensing (DVDL)

The DVDL was established under the Traffic Law with overall responsibility to:

  • inspect and test vehicles;
  • register motor vehicles and maintain the register;
  • issue licences in respect of motor vehicles and drivers;
  • conduct driving tests; and
  • perform such other functions as may, from time to time, be prescribed.

We are a department within the Ministry of District Administration, Works, Lands and Agriculture.

There are (2) locations in Grand Cayman, our Headquarters is located at 990 Crewe Road, George Town and our branch is located at Banks Plaza on Rev. Blackman Road, West Bay. The District Administration in Cayman Brac & Little Cayman is responsible for administering the vehicle and drivers’ licensing function in the Sister islands.

The department remains committed to its “Road Safety Initiatives” through vigorous vehicle inspections for roadworthiness; as well as being robust in conducting practical and theory driving tests to guarantee newly qualified drivers are competent.

As of December 2007 our records shows a total of 33164 registered vehicles and 44920 drivers licences.

Our motto is “Safe driving is everyone’s responsibility"
