Provisional Driver’s (Learner’s) Licence Valid for One Year

Tax Administration Jamaica (TAJ) is reminding the public that a Provisional Driver’s (Learner’s) Licence (PDL) is valid for one year, this means that those persons who already have a PDL will not need to apply for one at this time. However, once the PDL has expired the individual will then have to visit any Island Traffic Authority (ITA) Examination Depot, to make an application and successfully complete the Road Code test in order to be issued with a new one.

Applicants are being reminded of the following steps to obtain a Learner’s Licence once the new regime takes effect on January 25:

STEP 1: Visit any Island Traffic Authority's Examination Depot to submit their completed Application Form, along with three (3) identical certified photographs and take the Road Code Test.

STEP 2: The Application Form will be returned to the Applicant, in a sealed envelope, for him/her to submit it to the Tax Office of his/her choice, for the Provisional Licence to be processed. At the Tax Office the Form will be vetted and validated using a database shared by Island Traffic Authority and Tax Administration Jamaica. The Applicant will be directed to a Cashier to pay the fee of $1,800 and issued the Provisional Driver’s Licence, with the payment receipt affixed.

Application Forms will be available at all Examination Depots, Tax Offices, or from Tax Administration Jamaica’s (TAJ) website at or the website of the Ministry of Transport and Mining at
