The Department of Land Transport (DLT) has allowed all its offices to reopen for services related to driver’s license provision and tax payments, following the relaxation of lockdown measures, reports state news agency NNT.

DLT Director General Chirute Visalachitra said today (Sept 3) that services requiring in-person training will continue to be suspended, while all visitors to DLT officers will need to make an appointment ahead of time using the DLT Smart Queue application, in order to prevent crowding at the venues.

With the suspension of in-person training sessions, applicants for a new driver’s license and driver’s license renewals can instead take the training required online on  instead.

Meanwhile, other services related to license and tax payments have now fully resumed operations. Payment deadlines for tax and fees have been extended to Dec 31, before which vehicle owners won’t be subject to any late payment penalties.

Taxi owners are also spared the third, fourth, or sixth month vehicle inspection of their vehicles’ tax payments until 31st December as well. However, taxi owners who wish to apply for a vehicle service life extension permit from 9 to 12 years, still need to have their vehicles inspected as required.
