The Vehicle Registration Process In Bermuda

So you’re bringing your car with you and you want to know how to register it to the island nation of Bermuda. Before we get into that, note that Bermuda law requires drivers to be on the left-hand side of the road and the speed limits are marked in kilometers per hour versus miles per hour.

Bermuda Vehicle Registration Process

That said, registering, maintaining and applying for car registration in the country is relatively straightforward.

Registering A Vehicle

First things first is a list of the following documents.

  • A completed car registration form
  • Proof of residence
  • Proof of insurance
  • A bill of sale

People who are not residents of the island are barred by law against driving a four-wheeled vehicles. Scooters are still game though.

In addition to those documents, there are a number of fees associated with registering the car, including one for a license plate, one for a registration fee and a license. Those fees are also determined by the class of the vehicle and the age of the driver.

For our readers that are planning on registering an imported car in Bermuda, our shipping page for the island provides a thorough look at what’s involved in the process. As with any of our services, we are happy to answer any questions you may have, or provide a complementary cost estimate.

Getting A License In Bermuda

Unlike other countries where licenses are good for several years, drivers in Bermuda have to renew their license (spelled license in the country) once a year. Licenses are good for private cars, auxiliary vehicles and motorcycles.

Obtaining your license also requires a handful of items to be checked off. Those items are

  • Your vehicle passing the vehicle examination
  • Having a major credit card
  • Having a copy of the valid, up-to-date car registration

It should be noted that you can renew your license online if you desire.

Driving Etiquette & Tips For Bermuda

The country’s roads have a slew of vehicles on the road including taxis, buses, mini buses, scooters, mopeds, limos and, of course, other cars. The roads are notoriously narrow and accidents involving motorbikes are a common. Thick vegetation usually borders both sides of the road

More importantly, there is no defined shoulder on the roads, resulting in cars blocking most of a lane when they pull off to the side. While there’s a maximum speed limit of 35 kph/21mph on the island, most locals tend to speed above the limit. Thankfully the traffic is moderate.

Another noteworthy feature of the road are roundabouts that dot the island and can easily confuse drivers unaccustomed to driving on the left-hand side of the road.

Tourists are prohibited from driving cars on the road so they often use motorbikes to get around.

Satisfied Customers

“Just wanted you to know that the car arrived last Friday, the 29th with no problems. The driver was very nice and patient with driving directions! Thanks for your fine service and Happy Holidays!”

“After calling and texting a bunch of companies, it was a gentleman by the name of Joe who finally clarified what the transport industry’s all about. He explained the process in simple terms, and answered all my questions in short, clear answers. I chose his company, A1 Auto Transport to move my car to Utah. He didn’t disappoint. My ford was delivered on time and in perfect condition. Thank you for your hard work and attention to detail! The professionalism and passion you put into this work really shines through everything you do, from that first call to the transportation itself. Bonus points for always answering the phone and staying in touch during the transport. Good work!”

“Our SUV was delivered here in New York just eight days after it was picked up in Palo Alto, California. This is its second transcontinental trip with A-1 and I think you've done a terrific job. Thank you, Howard E., NYC”

“There aren’t many regulations in the auto shipping business, making it quite chaotic. Scams are unfortunately too frequent from what I’ve heard. I had to get my Porsche to Maryland, and the quotes I found ranged between $600 and $800. However, doing some research, most companies I found had mixed reviews. Some reviews were downright terrible. A1 Auto Transport was the exception, and it was easy to see why. From the very first call, Joe explained in detail everything I needed to know, how to stay in touch with his driver, and encouraged me to call me anytime I needed something. My car was delivered in less than a week. The price was the one we agreed on in the beginning, no extra charges midway. I requested they transport it in a covered trailer, so it would be safe from the elements. It was a bit more expensive but worth keeping my car safe. I am very happy with the results and would recommend A1 Auto Transport to everyone!”

“For one reason or another, shipping a car between states makes me a bit worried. Using another company prior to A1 Auto Transport which left a huge scratch on my car didn’t help ease my trust issues either. The quote Joe gave me wasn’t the lowest on my list (I did a ton of research this time), but I was less interested in getting a deal as I was in getting my car to Illinois safely. I paid a deposit after he picked up my car. By that point, it was in his hands. I was glad he called so much during transport. He must’ve felt I was stressed out by the whole experience. Fortunately, my worries were for nothing. This company pulled through and brought my car as I left it. Thank you Joe!”
