License Printer Out of Order Since February, Temporary Fix in Place

Generic License Printer

Since February of this year the printer at the Road Traffic Department in Marsh Harbour has been out of order and persons wanting driver’s licenses have had to settle for handwritten copies.

Numerous residents have expressed some frustrations, especially when travelling to the United States, of not having the proper, photo ID driver’s license.

However, sources say that there is at least a temporary fix coming soon. It is understood that driver’s license information is being sent to New Providence and when a resident applies at the local office it will then be printed in Nassau and sent possibly within a few days. Handwritten licenses will be given while the driver waits for their license to arrive.

According to a source the Road Traffic Department is expecting to put in a new computerized system by the end of the year and expectations of the printer being replaced before that time are low.
