Temporary vehicles to be licensed

From time to time there may be occasions when a vehicle is defective either because of accident damage or mechanical breakdown. In such cases we are able to licence a replacement vehicle for the period that the vehicle remains unfit.

We will licence such a vehicle for a period of not more than two months and during this time the vehicle being replaced will have its licence suspended.
