Barbados Revenue Authority Press Releases

(Bridgetown, January 11, 2021) Commencing Monday, January 11, 2021, the Barbados Revenue Authority will begin processing first-time vehicle registrations for private and commercial motor vehicles as well as registration renewals for commercial vehicles online only.

Payments will be facilitated through the SurePay online payment platform, surepaybills.com or its physical outlets. The Authority is also looking to expand the payment facility options for this service in the near future.

Garages, agents and individuals making an application for the specified vehicle registrations or renewals will be required to email a copy of the application form along with supporting documents to vehicleregistration@bra.gov.bb. Download application form for first-time registration for a private or commercial vehicle HERE. Download form for renewal of registration for a commercial vehicle HERE.

On approval, the applicant will receive a unique identifier to facilitate payment by cheque, cash or card, if applicable, via SurePay. SurePay will send the Authority confirmation of payment, and the Authority will issue the Barbados Licensing Authority receipt and collection date via the email address used for the application. Persons are encouraged to collect their licence sticker on their assigned date at the Authority’s Bridge Street Mall office between 9:00 am and 12:00 pm.

Please note that the current renewal registration process for privately owned vehicles, where stickers are issued via the post, remains in place. Owners of these private vehicles should not visit the Authority’s offices.

Also note that payment transactions for the first-time registration of Public Service Vehicles (PSVs) will continue to be processed at the Pine location.


Original documents should be submitted to the Authority within 30 days of submission via our Weymouth Corporate Centre dropbox.

A rigorous audit of the submissions will be conducted by the Authority’s Audit Department to ensure that the documentation emailed is complete and accurate and are true copies of the original documents. The Authority thanks the public for their cooperation in facilitating this change.
