Reduction of services at DVLD after several positive COVID-19 cases detected – 558/2021

By July 23, 2021 No Comments

HM Government of Gibraltar would like to inform members of the public that there have been several confirmed cases of COVID-19 at the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Department (DVLD).

In order to protect staff, family and members of the public from COVID-19, the Contact Tracing Bureau has instructed DVLD staff members that have been identified as close contacts to isolate with immediate effect and this has led to the temporary suspension of several DVLD services. 

The remaining staff at the DVLD are taking all possible steps to mitigate the problem and keep the Department running. The DVLD inspection lanes have been temporarily closed down and appointments are being  automatically rescheduled. Everyone with a valid MOT certificate which is due to expire will be issued an extension. At present, people can continue to apply online for DVLD services but delays in processing are inevitable.

We apologise for any inconvenience and appreciate your understanding during these very difficult times.
