Customers are strongly encouraged to explore all available time-slots at licensing locations nationally if your preferred location is unavailable. Additionally, persons are reminded that proof of address (utility bill no older than three months) is required to complete a licensing transaction. The accepted forms of proof of address include a cable bill, home internet bill, electricity bill (T&TEC) OR water bill (WASA).
