You are not permitted to drive on any expired driver’s licence or expired provisional/learner’s licence. To renew a provisional/learner’s licence you will have to complete the necessary application (link Form T.R.14) and pay the fee of $60.00. You are allowed only one renewal of your provisional/learner’s licence, after that period has lapsed, you will be required to complete an application and pay for a practical road exam at the cost of $50.00
If you are not a holder of a full Cayman Islands driver’s licence, then for you to obtain a provisional licence you will first have to pass a written exam. A holder of a full driver’s licence can complete an application (link Form T.R.14) for the desired group of provisional/learner’s licence and pay the fee of $60.00.
Written exam appointments can be rescheduled up to 15 minutes before testing time. Practical exams have to be rescheduled 24 hours before the testing time.

Yes, written test are conducted Monday through Friday at the Crewe Road office.
The vehicle must be insured at the time that the renewal licence application is submitted. However, it is not necessary for the insurance coverage submitted to cover the entire time period of the licence. It is permitted for insurance policies to have different expiry dates than those of the vehicle licence but any vehicle being driven within the Cayman Islands must have insurance coverage under the Traffic Act and the Motor Vehicle (Third Party Risks) Insurance Act.
If you have the new plate type (EVR) (white background), a coupon is not required, your old coupon should be removed from your windscreen. For vehicles that have the old plate type (yellow, orange, Quincentennial) a new coupon will be mailed to you with your vehicle’s licence paperwork.
Please click this link to find out if your new plates are ready for collection or contact the Call Center.
All vehicles require a coupon. Vehicles with the new white plates (EVR) coupon does not change each time the registration is renewed, only the old plates (yellow or orange.) The new EVR coupon has a minimum life of five years, so there is no need to change the coupon for each renewal.
All renewed vehicle licence paperwork are being emailed to the email address on file for the registered owner. Under standard operation there are two reasons why documents cannot be mailed:
Remember to request your ESID the next time you visit any of our office locations so that you can become a register user.
Under standard conditions the owner or applicant can collect the vehicle licence documents. Any third party can also collect the documents on the owner’s behalf. Please ensure that you bring a copy of the payment receipt with you when collecting the documents from DVDL.
You can drive your vehicle as soon as you have submitted your vehicle licence renewal application. However; you must print the payment receipt which has been sent to you by email after submission and store it in your vehicle until your licence document arrives in the post, if a paper coupon is needed. If stopped and questioned by the police this document serves as proof that your application has been submitted and is being processed. If your renewal application is refused, your vehicle is not permitted to be driven until a valid licence is granted.
If your application is denied you will be contacted by DVDL, in such a case.
ALL online application documents can be collected from the Customer Service Desk at the Crewe Road location, this is only necessary if you are collecting a paper coupon or driver’s licence.
An email will be sent to the email addresses provided. The email will contain the payment receipt as an attachment and any further actions will be detailed in the body of the email. Some of our standard email responses for online applications contain instructions to pick up documents from DVDL.
All vehicle licence renewal documents are mailed to the owner’s mailing address on our files, only if requested. If you have renewed your licence but your postal address printed on your driver’s licence is different to your present address, please contact DVDL immediately.
Once your application is submitted, please print the online transaction receipt for your records & keep it in your vehicle until your licence documents are received.
