Saint Lucia Tourism Transport Providers To Transition From ‘H’ To ‘TX’ Plates

spot_img

In keeping with Section 55 of the Motor Vehicles and Road Traffic Act (Cap. 8.01), the Department of Infrastructure, Ports and Transport, in collaboration with the Ministry of Tourism, Investment, Creative Industries, Culture and Information has been engaged in an exercise to regularize the operations of Tourism Transport Service Providers utilizing H plates to provide tourism transportation services.

This regularization process requires all approved tourism transportation service providers currently operating with H plates to transition to TX plates.

The verification and validation processes have been completed and submitted to the Saint Lucia Road Transport Board for consideration and approval of the Minister responsible for Transport, as required by Section 55 of the aforementioned Act.

Eligible operators are hereby informed that approval letters may be collected from the Transport Division at Union to facilitate registration with the approved TX permit.

All transitions must be completed by 30th September, 2023.

Operators who have been approved for transition are reminded that the use of H plates for tourism transport service will no longer be permitted to ensure compliance with Section 55 of the Motor Vehicles and Road Traffic Act (Cap. 8.01).

Effective immediately, all applications for tourism transportation services (Taxi Permit) must be on the prescribed form available at the Ministry of Tourism, Investment, Creative Industries, Culture and Information.

  1. and stop taking long to approve people applications to get their plates, yall inside there doing things for yall friends that have big businesses and numerous vehicles and the little man that have just one or two vehicles yall taking how long to call them for approval to get their plates that their documents like the certificate of character having time expired. Yall in charge need to stop that crap because yall know there is a dead line yall doing that BS. People that never did the course or followed the requirements getting plates long before people that are actually eligible with the papishow yall doing, everywhere is a damn borbol.

  2. ok so what about those who have not been approved and the transition dead line is the end of September are you stating that they cant use their H plates anymore to do tourism?

  3. SO LITTLE TIME, OR THAT STARTED MONTHS AGO. IF SO WHO EVER IS IN CHARGE OF THESE APPLICATIONS GET BUSY. NO PRIORITY CASES , NO CUTTING IN LINE, NO FRIENDS FIRST. DO THE RIGHT THING FOR A CHANGE.

  4. And the wirld will stop turning. Of all the things to report is this crap. Min of infrastructure y’all should be ashamed of yallselves. What the hell does that mean to operators which plate they use. Does that make anyone’s life any better. Tell me about improvements in service at the transport ministry instead. #Mediocrity in st Lucia.
