Automatic extension of vehicle license but the need to extend insurance remains. VRT tests suspended.

All vehicle licenses that expire from the end of March 2020 onwards will remain automatically valid for the following months, as long as these vehicles are covered by a valid insurance policy. This notification will remain valid until further notice.

There will be no VRT tests for those vehicles which require it to extend their licence, during this period as all VRT stations will close down immediately. Despite these measures, the Authority emphasises the fact that a valid insurance policy is still required. Insurance intermediaries will issue the policy electronically.

Transport Malta is taking these measures to minimise contact between individuals and thus help reduce the transmission of the COVID-19 virus.

Transport Malta is adopting these measures following discussions with the Health Authorities, in collaboration with the Malta Insurance Associations (MIA) and the Malta Chamber of SMEs (formerly GRTU).

This notice will remain valid until the Authority communicates otherwise.
