Driver's License Division increasing staff

Posted: Updated:

Guam - If the lines for the Driver's License Division are any indication, the Department of Revenue & Taxation and tax is working on reducing the wait in line by increasing its staff. DRT director John Camacho says the lines may have increased due to having to close early twice last week and employees going on leave.

He told KUAM News, "We're trying to rectify that problem, and what we're doing right now is we're looking at additional personnel to work on driver's license right now and we're looking at even as many as five starting next week to speed up the process."

He adds DRT is looking to reduce the waiting period to take your road test for your drivers license by allowing staff to administer the test off-duty after working hours or on the weekend. He says the normal wait period for your road test is between four to six months. Regulations and procedures including a possible $15 fee are being worked on with a target date set for January.
