BMV Reminds Public to Register Vehicles or Face Citations

Virgin Islands Bureau of Motor Vehicles

Director Barbara Jackson-McIntosh reminds the motoring public that all vehicles in the territory must be registered with the Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV).  Effectively immediately, the Virgin Police Department will issue citations for unregistered vehicles, including vehicles that were never titled or registered in the Virgin Islands.

In addition, if there is a change of ownership of a vehicle bought locally, the law requires that vehicles must be transferred into the new owner’s name within 24 hours of the transaction.  If an owner fails to properly transfer the ownership of the vehicle at the BMV and is stopped by law enforcement officers, the owner will receive a citation.

The application that is required to apply for a Certificate of Title and a list of the required documents are available on the BMV website at www.bmv.vi.gov. Click on the FORMS tab; download the pdf fillable Certificate of Title Application.

For more information, contact the BMV at 713-4268 on St. Croix, 774-4268 on St. Thomas, 776-6262 on St. John or via email at info@bmv.vi.gov.
