Retain Your Driver's Licence Receipt


The Barbados Licensing Authority advises the public to retain the receipt, obtained at the renewal of the driver’s licence, as proof of payment, along with the expired driver’s licence. 

Both the receipt from the renewal of the driver’s licence and the expired driver’s licence must be kept together as proof of payment. This is an interim measure until the printing of drivers’ licence cards resumes. 

The Barbados Licensing Authority thanks the public for its cooperation in this matter.

International Women's Day Message




Published in News

The Barbados Association of Retired Persons – BARP publicly applauds the Ministry of Health for its outstanding service to the country to- date through its efforts to contain the COVID-19 pandemic.

However, today we recommend that the National Vaccination Programme for COVID-19 be suspended for one day to allow for an urgent evaluation of this important initiative. 

There are three specific areas BARP wants to be reviewed based on the 33633 people vaccinated as of Friday February 26, 2021.

1.    What is the age breakdown of those vaccinated? 

2.    Is the Ministry of Health satisfied that of the approximately 33000 people (11.5%, of population) over the age of 70 that an adequate number has been vaccinated?

3.    Should the vaccine be extended to other age groups at this stage?

BARP's concern is directed towards the health and safety of the over 70s and given the high number in this age group who have died already this year as a result of COVID-19.

The best way to demonstrate our admiration and gratitude to our seniors for their contribution to this country’s development is by protecting them and helping them to safely survive this pandemic. 


Marilyn Rice-Bowen – President – BARP – Feb28, 2021
