THE Road Transport and Safety Agency (RTSA) has given a grace period of 14 days within which motorists and fleet owners should acquire motor vehicle and trailer licences (road tax) and road service licences for this year.
RTSA director and chief executive officer Zindaba Soko stated that all motorists, fleet owners and Public Service Vehicle Operators have been give an extension of up to January 14 to pay for the required licenses.
Soko stated that there would therefore be no enforcement of the validity of the said documents until the stated grace period had expired.
He stated that the agency was providing the grace period to accommodate the licensing needs of all motorists and fleet owners.
“However, the extension does not include the certificate of fitness and the test certificates as the two relate to road-worthiness and the safety of the vehicle. The RTSA hopes that the public will utilise the extension to comply with the law,” stated Soko.
