The Licence Revenue Office of the Guyana Revenue Authority (GRA) is the only agency in Guyana authorised to register an individual as a Driver and issue the respective licence. An application for Driver’s Licence can be made at the GRA’s Headquarters or any of its Regional Branch Offices. All payments must be made at GRA’s Cashiers or via our alternative payment options (MMG, Republic Bank, GBTI, etc.)

An individual applying for a new Driver’s Licence will be required to ensure all documentation are submitted before the process can successfully commence. Additionally, applicants should note that if they are making an application to be issued with the ‘Plastic Card’ Licence, they must present themselves to the Licence Revenue   Office, 200-201 Camp Street, to have their photograph taken. As such, a third party cannot make the application on behalf of the applicant.
