This declaration form provides you with the ability to assign the contravention to the person driving the vehicle at the date, time and place of the said contravention. The contravention will be issued in the name of the driver indicated only if the full details are provided and declaration is signed by both parties involved. A copy of the driver`s driving license is requested as an attachment to the said declaration upon upload. This declaration can only be uploaded within 15 days from date of issue of ticket and can only be done on contraventions which have not yet been settled.
If the declaration is not signed by the driver, the contravention will still remain on the owner of the vehicle, however the person driving the vehicle will receive a summons to appear in front of the Tribunal as a witness. This can only be done if the full details of the driver are provided in the declaration form.
In the case of leased or rented vehicles, it is of utmost importance that the rental or lease agreement is uploaded together with the declaration form. Alternatively the Vehicle Declaration Form specifying the period when the vehicle was leased to the said person is to be uploaded. If the rental/lease agreement or the Vehicle Declaration Form is uploaded, the contravention would be issued on the person who was driving the vehicle at the date, time and place of contravention.
If you do not want to do this declaration process for each and every case (especially if you have more than one vehicle licensed in your name), we suggest that you register on les.gov.mt for e-Services wherein you could specify the Appointed Driver of the said vehicle and upload the Driver’s driving license or any other document proving that the vehicle is not used by the owner (such as the Rental agreement) or the Vehicle Declaration Form.
WHOEVER IS FOUND TO HAVE MADE A FALSE DECLARATION WILL BE GUILTY OF A CRIMINAL OFFENCE AND WILL BE PROSECUTED
