Driv­ing li­cense tests now eas­ier

Go! Camp & Drive - - NEWS -

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. >
