Licences needed for animals or animal-drawn vehicles on the road

Licences needed for animals or animal-drawn vehicles on the roadAs from today, Transport Malta is now accepting applications for licences for animals or animal-drawn vehicles to be used on the road and licences for the drivers – the new regulations mean that animal-drawn vehicles or animals, can be driven on the roads in the rush-hour period, however, it does not apply to karozzini.

Transport Malta advised that persons owning one or more animal-drawn vehicles, and/or one or more animals used under saddle should submit the applicable application forms so that they can be licensed for the use of such vehicles and/or animals on the road.

Applications must be accompanied by, an insurance certificate for each animal-drawn vehicle or animal to be licensed and health certificate issued by a veterinarian and an identification document for each animal to be licensed.

Moreover, persons wishing to apply for a licence to drive such animal-drawn vehicles and/or animals on the road are also required to collect and submit the applicable application form.

Guidelines have been prepared to help applicants through this process- these may be downloaded from here [1]. A process flow chart describing the process for the issue of these licences may be downloaded from here [2].

The Veterinarian Surgeons offering their service for the issue of the General Health Certificates are listed here [3].
