Soon, Belize City residents won't have to worry about going into the Traffic Department to renew their driver's licenses. That's because, starting tomorrow, the council is offering online renewal of driver's licenses. With a web connection, and a credit card, in just a few clicks you'll be able to renew your driver's permit. At the launch today at City Hall, the Deputy Mayor explained that they expect about a third of license holders to use the service immediately.

BQ Pitts Jr., Deputy Mayor - Belize City
"For the 15,000 you would say at least we have about 5,000 - 7,000 would use the service and it's a matter of convenience really because most people want to get the service quick. You'd spend about 15 - 30 minutes in traffic and then to wait another 15 minutes to get it, but with this service now, you will cut that by half or even less."

Now that's applying. To pick it up - you can take your printed receipt, and go in to the Traffic Office yourself or pay ten dollars more to have the license delivered to you in person within city limits.

That may take a few days, and in the interim, drivers can use their print out receipts as provisional short term permits. In the future, the service will be expanded to include debit cards and account transfers, but right now it's strictly credit cards.

The service is being facilitated through the Atlantic Bank.

How do you access it? Well, go to the City Council website at bliezecitycouncil.org, click on the "Web" menu at the far right, and right there, you'll see a tab that says "renew driver's permit." From there, it's pretty straightforward.

Again, they say it should be live tomorrow.

This morning that Belize City Council officially launched its online renewal driver license services. License holders now have the opportunity to go online and renew their driver license. Belize City Deputy Mayor, Bernard Pitts says itís an easy process to follow.

Bernard Pitts, Deputy Mayor, Belize City

ďI must say that the online renewal system is something that we want to bring to the Belize City residents to assist in ease of time and process. The process is quite simple but it will serve to bring about the necessary change in the e-commerce market for the Belize City Council; it will form the base for us to do other services such as paying trade license and paying property taxes online but for now, this is our start with the renewal of driverís license and I must say it is renewal and not applying. To bring the service online, you will be able to pay via your credit card and shortly within a few months, we will introduce paying via your bank account and your debit card. A feature on this site is that you have the option of having the card delivered to you but only the holder of the card will be able to sign for it. So, both holder and delivery personnel from the Belize City Council will be responsible to ensure that the service is executed properly. We also want to mention that apart from delivering within city limits we will later feature a service to deliver internationally for Belizean Americans abroad; they will be able to apply online. However, we will facilitate this locally through the embassies and consular sections within the three major areas in the US, Los Angeles, Chicago and New York. Once the service is requested, we will deliver via those local embassies to the various Belizean Americans abroad.Ē As Pitts mentioned, there is no service charge except for the delivery fee which is ten dollars. Delivery is done within two to three business days and within city limits at the moment. License renewal can be done at www.BelizeCityCouncil.org.
