The Road Transport Department (TOM) on Wednesday announced the launch of another grant scheme for the purchase of protective motorcycle airbag vests after its success in 2022.
Those interested can apply for the scheme – whose grant covers up to €500 – until March 1 at www.motosafety.gov.cy.
TOM also announced that, in 2022, more than 1,700 people applied to the scheme and that aside from Cypriot nationals, EU-citizenship holders and third-country nationals with a valid permanent residence permit will also be able to apply.
Provided that they are holders of an A, A1 or A2 driving licence, are registered with TOM and have a motorcycle registered in their name.
To apply, people will have to provide their ID, date of birth, vehicle registration number, mobile phone number and email address.
In case interest is greater than the predetermined number of applications, an electronic lottery will be conducted.
And applicants will be notified of preliminary approval via email or text message.
