The Road Transport and Safety Agency (RTSA) has given all motorists and Public Service Vehicle (PSV) operators a grace period within which they may acquire relevant licenses for the year 2015.


RTSA Acting Director and Chief Executive Officer Gladwell Banda said it was evident that motorists and PSV operators around the country were still in the process of acquiring licenses such as road tax, road service licenses and identity certificates for 2015 when in fact the deadline is tomorrow, 31st December 2014.


Mr. Banda noted that the grace period would be for the whole month of January 2015 because of the high motorization rate in the country.


He said during this period, no enforcement for the validity of the same licenses will be effected until after the grace period.


Mr. Banda said RTSA, like in the past years, is providing this grace period to accommodate the licensing needs of all motorists.


He further appealed to motorists and PSV operators to utilise the extended period wisely and comply with all legal requirements.


This is contained in a statement released to ZANIS in Lusaka today by RTSA Senior Public Relations Manager Mercy Mwila.
