The Department of Transport has published the updated regulations that detail the fees that the Road Traffic Management Corporation (RTMC) can charge motorists when renewing their driver’s licences online.

The updated regulations, gazetted on 8 October and reported on by MyBroadband, are now in draft and open to public comment for 30 days, said the department.

According to the new regulations, the RTMC may charge motorists for a variety of licence renewal-related services performed on the online NaTIS system.

These services comprise:

    • The online notification of change of ownership of a motor vehicle by the current titleholder
    • The online renewal of driving licence card
    • The delivery of a driving licence card
    • The provision of an electronic copy of an accident report
  • Collecting revenue on behalf of a department or local government body
  • All fines payable to the RTMC as an issuing authority for the purposes of the NRTA, NLTA, CBRTA, and AARTO

The updated fees as published in the government gazette are as follows:

App

Before the release of the new regulations, the South African Post Office (SAPO) announced that it is working on a mobile application that will allow motorists to update their vehicle licences.

The app lets users complete the licence renewal process from start to finish, including payment, from their smartphones.

Motorists will then have to collect their physical licence disks at nearby post office outlets, or have it delivered to their doors for a nominal fee.

“This service – part of the SAPO in my Pocket strategy – will be available by the end of October this year,” said the SAPO.
