Statement by Hon Kye Rymer
Minister for Transportation, Works and Utilities
at the Fifth Sitting of the Second Session of the Fourth
House of Assembly of the Virgin Islands
On Bikers Fair
20th February 2020
Mister Speaker, the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) has partnered with Ultimate Vacation B.V.I Ltd. to ensure the success of the Ultimate Biker’s Run 2020 that is slated for March 29, 2020 right here on Tortola.
In preparation of the Ultimate Biker’s Run, the DMV along with the organizers are hosting a licensing and registration drive this Saturday 22nd February starting from 10:30am behind the Ralph T. O’Neal Administration Complex. Available at the event would be an insurance agency that would allow you to purchase insurance coverage in order to have your motorcycle/scoter licensed.
Mr. Speaker, with the increase usage of motorcycles and scooters on the roadway, safety and rider education is paramount. Educational fliers will be handed out during the event along with the administering of the written exams, rider’s skill test and as mentioned before, the registering and licensing of scooters/motorcycles. The entire process can be completed on the spot.
Mister Speaker, I am delighted that the Department is actively participating in such an event and I encourage all unlicensed riders and potential riders to take part in this event.
