EZ to Pay Driver’s License Renewal: Happenings @GAIA

BU tries to keep an eye on all developments occurring in the country. On this note the government must be complemented for maintaining an active GIS news presence on its portal and Facebook. Of interest to Barbadians is the news a driver’s license can now be renewed remotely. This follows the use of technology to improve the quick turnaround of certificates of character.

There was also the news “thirteen companies or consortia with significant experience in the aviation sector have received the go-ahead to bid on the operation, financing, development and maintenance of the Grantley Adams International Airport (GAIA)“.

See link to GIS portal for details.

We look forward to the rollout of improvements to obsolete processes gathering momentum in the weeks and months to come.


  • If it wasn’t something positive you would have 100 comments by now, including Waru 50 .


  • It is unfortunate as people we tend most times to ignore the positive. It is a common day behaviour on social media platforms usually driven by the need to engage in self aggrandizing.


  • Welcome to the new lawlessness.

  • Glad to hear this. I always renew for 5 years because i hate waiting in line. I am good for another few years. But I am seriously thinking letting my licence expire permanently because I don’t know if I want to drive anymore. By the time this licence expires one of the grands should be old enough to drive me.

    But u haven’t had a car in years?

    Solid list of potential GAIA operators.



    Keep it. the need to use it will pop up when you least expect it. Be prepared incase of emergency


  • Congratulations on a very positive move on someone’s part. Pity they could not find a more cost-effective way of delivery to the home. Sixteen dollars delivery is a hefty sum especially when one considers that seniors can only renew for one year at a time upon presentation of a medical certificate declaring the individual medically fit to drive. Five dollars to renew, sixteen dollars to deliver. Why not put it in an envelope and mail it? Fifty cents local postage?


  • It is an important document. They want to ensure it reached the intended target

    But, there is always a but. There are people who love me and who let my drive their vehicles.


  • “If it wasn’t something positive you would have 100 comments by now, including Waru 50”

    looked at in reality, it’s BECAUSE OF MULTIPLE COMMENTS we are seeing helter skelter attempts at introducing the positives, i will wait until i here that there are no hiccups, like with the new port system that took months to fix, before i start with the applause..

    remember, i got a license too, so am bound to find out..


  • am really beginning to wonder though, for the last year there have been accusations on other media platforms that the water supply on the island has been tampered with for decades, many of the usual criminal suspects names have been called, so those like myself are actually thinking if that is the cause of some of you having such short or nonexistent memories, but then there are those African descendents in UK and other dispora areas displaying the same short memory syndrome, so hoping to hear eventually what’s the cause…everything tends to come out in the wash..

    the cockup at the port happened barely a couple months ago, yet here you are thinking we should all fall down in supplication when we don’t know if the damn new system is working or will have future problems…steupppss..


  • Finally.

    33 Electric buses will be on the roads from today in Barbados. It was a long road with many hurdles to overcome. Thanks to the team for building on a dream and making it a reality.
