Agreement about St. Martin/St. Maarten driver’s licenses

POSTED: 11/13/12 12:42 PM

St. Martin – The French and Dutch sides of the island signed an agreement during Sunday’s St. Maarten Day celebration that will give French-side residents holding a Dutch-side driver’s license until March 31 of next year  to renew their license; after that they’ll have six months to exchange them for a French driver’s license.

On February 15 of this year France, St. Maarten and the Territorial Council of Saint-Martin signed a letter of intent, entitled “Transportation of Persons and Goods.” It states that the co-signers intend to work on issues of common interest pertaining to public transportation as well as personal and commercial vehicles operating across the border.

A second category of persons, who are not covered in the first category, who hold a driver’s license issued by the Government of St. Maarten, residing in the Collectivité of Saint-Martin, and drivers whose permits have expired after June 1, or that will soon expire will be allowed to renew their licenses for a period to be specified by the Ministry of Justice of St. Maarten, pending the implementation of the new Traffic Codes of Country St. Maarten.
