The Land Transport Authority is reminding public service vehicle (PSV) permit holders – that it is compulsory – to renew their permits at least 28 days before it expires.

The reminder comes from LTA chief executive officer Naisa Tuinaceva, for the sole purpose of avoiding the flood of applications that may come there way after the expired date.

He said the given time frame would allow the permit holders to make the necessary preparations, and the authority to process the applications in good time.

“The authority would like to stress that the current law is still applicable, therefore permit holders must comply with the regulation at all times and submit their application at least 28 days before expiry,” he said.

“From June 1 any permit application which does not meet the requirements will be strictly considered under the LTA Act and Regulation.

“This means that the authority will refuse all late applications for renewal of PSV permit.”

Mr Tuinaceva said conditions on the renewal of PSV permits were clearly outlined in the LTA Act and Regulation.

“Many permit holders continue to ignore the advice and they tend to rush to LTA to renew their permit on the day it expires,” he said.

“This is why we are making this call for PSV permit holders to apply within the given time frame to avoid any confusion.”

All PSV permits, except for buses, are valid for three years; thereafter the permit holder must renew them.

Buses are governed by the Road Route License (RRL) and permits are valid for a minimum of five to 10 years.
