LIVINGSTONE , 14th January 2018 — The Road Transport and Safety Agency (RTSA) has extended the grace period for motorists to acquire motor vehicle and trailer licences (road tax) and road service licences for the year 2018.
All motorists and Public Service Vehicle Operators have been given an extension of up to 31st January, 2018 to pay for the required licenses.
There will be no enforcement of the validity of the said documents until the stated grace period has expired. Law enforcement agencies are advised accordingly.
The Agency is providing this grace period to accommodate the licensing needs of all motorists.
However, the extension does not include the certificate of fitness and the test certificates as the two relate to the road-worthiness and the safety of vehicles. Insurance must also be valid at all times.
The RTSA hopes that the public will utilise the extension to comply with the law and pay for all road licences.
The Agency will embark on a countrywide traffic law enforcement programme beginning the month of February, 2018 to ensure compliance to statutory obligation in relation to road safety.
