Solomon Islands Prime Minister, Hon. Gordon Darcy Lilo was the first Solomon Islander to be issued with the new driver's licence produced by Inland Revenue’s new Transport Management System.
The new license initiative was made possible by the New Zealand Government's contribution of the SBD$6.5 million dollar system.
The first issuance of the licence was made by the Deputy Principal Licensing Officer, George Tapo, who was accompanied by Acting New Zealand High Commissioner Sarah Wong.
From Monday, 10th February, other drivers and vehicle owners whose licence is due to expire soon will be to go to the Inland Revenue website at www.ird.gov.sb or phone the Transport Licensing Team on 28246, or call in to the Inland Revenue Office to get an information pamphlet, details of the new fees or pick up the necessary forms.
If you have any questions about the new system please contact Inland Revenue on the above contact.
