RATSA gives 14 days for licence renewals

By Staff Reporter

Road Transport and Safety Agency (RATSA) has given a 14-day grace period to motorists and fleet owners within which to acquire motor vehicle and trailer licences (road tax) and road service licences for the year 2019.

RTSA Chief Executive Officer Zindaba Soko said there would be no enforcement of the validity of said documents until the stated grace period expired.

Soko said the extension was meant to accommodate the licensing needs of all motorists and fleet owners.

He however, cautioned motorists that the extension did not cover the certificate of fitness and the test certificates as the two relate to road-worthiness and the safety of the vehicle.

Soko expressed hope that the public would utilise the extension to comply with the law.

He has also urged motorists to renew and pay for motor vehicle and trailer licences for the year 2019 in accordance with the provisions of the Road Traffic Act No. 11 of 2002.
