A Licensing Officer or Customer Support Unit will inform you of the appointment times available, and can book a time that best fits your schedule.

An examination fee of CI$25.00 will be charged at the time of you booking the appointment. (Remember to bring along a valid photo I.D for proof of age and identity, e.g. a passport). (Written Exam Form)

If necessary, you may cancel your appointment, however, you will only be refunded if your appointment is cancelled at least 24 hours in advance.
