The new Department of Vehicle and Drivers’ Licensing branch is now open to the public at the SouthCoast Plaza in Breakers, Bodden Town.
Opening hours are Tuesday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The plaza opened on Thursday, Oct. 14, and features a full inspection station, registration and drivers’ licensing kiosks offering similar services to the one on Crewe Road in George Town.
The department is staffed by five government employees – supervisor Della Henry, vehicle inspector Shawn Solomon and three customer service agents, Keisha Royal, Niuvis Carter and Kevin Powell.
Midland Acres resident Michael Chapman said he was pleased that the department was in the area and he did not have to travel all the way to George Town to license his vehicle.
A tire and tire repair shop also opened to the public in the Plaza on Thursday.
Located in Breakers, opposite the South Coast Bar and Grill, the Plaza was built by bar owner Tony Powell.
Government leased the facility from the private owner to house the Licensing Department.
This is the third licensing station for the department – one is located at DVDL’s 990 Crewe Road headquarters and the other at 9 Rev. Blackman Road in West Bay, near the police station.
