- The Road Traffic Management Corporation will launch a new online service that will make life easier for South African drivers
- The new system will be launched this month in Gauteng and be expanded to the rest of the country
- The RTMC hopes this new system will put an end to corruption
Corrupt licensing officials and long waiting queues could soon be a thing of the past for South Africans applying for vehicle license renewals or applications as well as learner applications.
The Road Traffic Management Corporation (RTMC) will launch a new online service sometime in August.
The new system will allow driver licence applicants and learner applicants to choose the place, date and time they want to do their tests.
An online booking can be finalised in 5 to 10 minutes.
The RTMC feels this new system will help end corruption at the department.
According to a report by EWN, Simon Zwane from the RTMC said they are aware of the corrupt dealings of officials in the past and that the way things have been done was open to corruption.
Zwane added that it will be dealt with and services will be improved for the public.
Initially, the system will first be available to people making their applications in Gauteng before it will be gradually expanded to other parts of the country.
