Recently there have been messages being shared stating that come Monday 20th February 2017, Police and Licensing Officers will be out in force checking vehicle inspection stickers and certificates. The messages go on to state that the fine for not having this sticker up-to-date is TT$5000 while others quote TT$1000 and TT$7500. I contacted Mr. Phillip Greaves, Interim President of the Association of Vehicle Inspection Stations in Trinidad & Tobago to shed some light on this.
According to Mr. Greaves, “first and foremost it is the law of Trinidad & Tobago to have your vehicle inspection valid regardless if Police are enforcing it or not”. So you cannot claim you did not know they were checking or not.
