This notification will remain valid until further notice, Malta Transport said.

    There will be no VRT tests for those vehicles which require it to extend their licence during this period as all VRT stations will close down immediately. Despite these measures, the authority emphasises the fact that a valid insurance policy is still required. Insurance intermediaries will issue the policy electronically.
