Driving license tests now easier
The Road Traffic Management Corporation (RTMC) is launching an electronic service that will allow you to make appointments for learner-license and driving-license tests.
With this system, applicants will be able to choose which date and time they want. The hope is that it will not only eliminate queues at the testing centres, but also corruption. The system can also be used to renew existing licenses.
“We found that some corrupt traffic authorities interfere with appointment dates for their own profit. We’re going to tackle this corruption and improve service to the public,” says Simon Zwane, spokesman for the RTMC.
The corporation survived its own corruption scandal in 2012 after the agency’s liabilities exceeded its assets because R200 million e-Natis money belonging to the national revenue fund was used illegally by the previous board. >
