Once these documents have been presented to any of our Licensing Officers, it is their duty to ensure that the information provided is updated on our records system. During this time, a Licensing Officer may ask you if you have changed your mailing address, telephone number (s), email address or name (by marriage or deed poll).
Licensing a new vehicle is similar to that of a renewal. Instead of presenting a log book you will be required to fill out the Application to Register a Vehicle which is provided by the inspector. This is used to register vehicles that have never been registered in the Cayman Islands before, whether new or secondhand. This form, along with your insurance and Certificate of Road Worthiness must be presented to a Licensing Officer.
Did you know that you can licence your vehicle for 3, 6, 12, 24, 36 or 60 months? A vehicle licence can be renewed for any combination of periods that will fit within the Certificate of Roadworthiness period granted.
3-months and 6-months vehicle license renewals are also available for all vehicles.
Upon completion of the registration process, new vehicles will receive a set of registration plates. These licence plates, as they are commonly known, must be affixed to the front and rear of the vehicle, except for trailers & motorcycles.
All vehicles will receive an EVR (Electronic Vehicle Registration) displaying the plate number and date issued. The electronic tag or coupon is to be displayed on the front windscreen, centered from the top. It has a minimum life of five years so there is no need to change the coupon for each renewal of the vehicle licence (Plate Instructions). An EVR signifies that your vehicle has been licensed in accordance with the relevant Traffic Act and can be operated on all public roads up until the date shown on the log book.
Your fees will be determined by several key factors such as the time period your vehicle is being licensed for, and type of vehicle. The cost for inspection will be added.
