Motor Vehicle Registration Series “WW” to end shortly - “XX” Series will be introduced

Georgetown, Friday, June 1, 2018: The Guyana Revenue Authority (GRA) wishes to advise the general public that registration of the motor vehicle series “XX” will soon commence in keeping with the Motor Vehicle and Road Traffic Act.

In accordance with the Motor Vehicle and Road Traffic Act Chapter 51:02, a motor vehicle registration series elapses after nine thousand, nine hundred and ninety-nine (9,999) vehicles have been registered by the Licence Revenue Office under that series.

In his capacity as Chief Licensing Officer, the Commissioner General of the GRA, Mr. Godfrey Statia, has given his approval for the new “XX” series to be introduced.

Motor Vehicle owners are reminded that the Motor Vehicle Licence expires on the Registration anniversary of the vehicle. Vehicle licences can be renewed at GRA’s Headquarters or any of GRA’s Branch Offices. However, when the registration for a vehicle has to be amended, for example, transfer of ownership, change of colour, change of intended use, etc., the vehicle must be physically examined by the Licence Revenue Office of the GRA before registration is issued.

Registration and change of motor vehicle registrations are all done at GRA’s Headquarters, 200-201 Camp Street, South Cummingsburg. The examination process will be undertaken at the Smyth Street Office or any GRA Regional Branch Office.

Persons who require additional information can call our Licence Revenue Office on 227-6060, extensions 1025-6 or Tax Advisory Services Section on extensions 1201 -1204.
