Registering a car in the Cayman Islands | Process & Procedure

Bringing your car to a new country can be tough with all the paperwork, customs hurdles and inspections. The company you opted to hire to bring your car in may help you greatly with the process or you might be left to do a lot of the legwork on your own.

Cayman Islands Vehicle Registration Process

Regardless of the situation, it’s best to acquaint yourself with some of the steps required to own and register a car in the Cayman Islands. Take a look at the following information for some quick information.

Licensing A New Vehicle

  • An application to register a vehicle for cars (new or used) that have never been to the islands before.
  • Insurance paperwork
  • Certificate of License and Road Worthiness

The certificate, sometimes referred to as a log book, has the registered owner’s name but also the key characteristics of the vehicle. The document is used to determine when the vehicle is due for an inspection, when the registration is set to renew, the vehicle’s category and whether there’s a bank lien against it.

Part of owning a vehicle in the Cayman Islands is having it inspected regularly.

What to expect with inspections:

  • All lights, from the turn signals to the bulbs that light up the license plates, must be working
  • Glass in the windows must be free of cracks and other things that obstruct the driver’s view. Tinted windows have to allow at least 35 percent light transmission.
  • Windshield wipers must be fully operational, including the rubber on the wipers.
  • Tires have to be in good condition, including the spare.

For readers that may be shipping a vehicle to the Cayman Islands, more information can be found on our international shipping page for the country, including the required import documents and projected costs.

Part of the process may also involve the inspector driving your vehicle on the road. Vehicles not meeting the requirements are given a certificate of defects to be fixed. Once fixed, the vehicle can be taken back for another inspection.

It should be noted vehicles are required to be inspected and licensed each year, though newer vehicles can obtain a license of three years.

Registering Your Vehicle

Vehicles can be licensed for various periods of time, including three months, six months,  one year, two years or three years.

After registering the vehicle, owners will receive a sticker stating how long the vehicle’s registration is good for. The sticker (colloquially referred to as a coupon) needs to be displayed on the windshield.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.
★★★★★

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.
★★★★★

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!
★★★★★

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
