I was really trying to avoid getting my St. Thomas U.S.V.I. drivers license but I got tired of the mean women at Magens Bay charging me a full rate because I didn’t have my USVI license (and trust me, they knew I was local). But that’s another story for another day.
This is how easy it is to get your USVI license:
The St. Thomas Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is open from 8am-3pm (closed during the many, many, many holidays). Their phone number is 340-774-5765.
Here’s what you need:
1. A Valid Stateside License (a temporary won’t work)
2. Social Security Card
3. Passport or Birth Certificate
4. Your driving record (get a copy from your local DMV or insurance agent)
Fill out the “Intial/Renewal” Form, stand in line and pay the $45 fee (remember to smile and say “good morning” or “good afternoon”). Then you’ll need to wait for them to call you to get your picture taken. The St. Thomas DMV will take your stateside license and give you a new USVI license.
I arrived at 8:30 and was done by 9.
