Registering An Imported Vehicle In Trinidad: What To Know

Before we discuss the various aspects of registering a vehicle in Trinidad, you should be aware that there is both a value added tax (VAT) and a motor vehicle tax that will have to be paid to register a vehicle in Trinidad & Tobago.

The VAT currently sits at 12.5% of the vehicle value, however, the motor vehicle tax varies depending on the type of vehicle and its engine displacement. For vehicles with an engine size of 2,000cc’s or more, the tax has been increased 50%. There is also a sliding scale of taxation that charges more for different tiers of engine displacement. What this means for those shipping cars from the U.S. is that it won’t be cheap since many of our vehicles exceed 2,000 cc’s.

Trinidad Vehicle Inspection

There if a fine of around $750 if you are caught driving a vehicle that has not been submitted for inspection in Trinidad. This fine also applies if you are driving with an expired inspection sticker since every vehicle is legally required to be roadworthy. The inspection is sometimes to referred to as a “Roadworthiness Inspection” for this reason. If a vehicle is five years old (or more), it must be reinspected every two years.

Driving & Vehicle Registration Resources In Trinidad

There are some key differences to driving in Trinidad that you should be aware of. This section covers the main points and includes some driving tips on the island, as well as some informational resources to help you if you have further questions.

Driving In Trinidad

Vehicles in Trinidad drive on the left side of the road, as opposed to the right-side driving in many other countries. You may find that drivers in Trinidad use their horn more liberally and their blinkers less frequently than you’re accustomed to. You should also pay special attention to pedestrians as they may not always yield to vehicular traffic.

Driving without insurance or registration is not a light offense in Trinidad, nor is texting while driving or operating a vehicle with any alcohol in your system. These are very important things to keep in mind, especially if you’re coming from the U.S., where the penalties are less severe in comparison.

Trinidad Vehicle Resources

Trinidad Highway Code - Driving regulations for Trinidad and Tobago including information for drivers, pedestrians, and how to interpret the local street signs. There is also a good section about driving and safety tips.

Trinidad Ministry of Works & Transport - The Ministry of Works and Transport oversees the licensing, registration, and inspection of vehicles in Trinidad. You can think of them as the equivalent to a motor vehicle bureau or department in Trinidad.

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!
