DMV not administering road tests

The Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) has suspended all road tests indefinitely.

The DMV said all other tests required to obtain a driver’s license also have been suspended.

The department said the suspension is in light of the September hurricanes which caused severe damage to public infrastructure.

“The roads are bad and there are no traffic signs around,” a representative of the DMV explained this afternoon.

Further information on the suspension has not been forthcoming.

Some motorists, in the meantime, have lamented that they were struggling to get their hurricane-damaged vehicles repaired in time for inspection and licensing by the DMV.

Premier Dr D Orlando has since promised to hold talks with traffic authorities to address the issue.

Traffic authorities had noted that the laws governing the licensing of vehicles remain the same regardless of the hurricanes, adding that any leniency would be at the discretion of the Commissioner of Motor Vehicles, Kye Rymer, and his team.
