RTMC launches online payments for license renewals

The Road Traffic Management Corporation launched the online payments on the Natis online booking system today.

According to RTMC, this new system enhances online renewals and bookings. It is meant to create a seamless booking experience when using online booking services.

These developments form part of measures designed in response to the pandemic, where the government has imposed strict regulations to curb the spread of Covid-19.

The absence of online payments made it impossible for motorists to renew their licences without physically going to DLTCs. Introducing online payments means that one can avoid long queues and simply renew online, make a payment and opt for home delivery.

Individuals and corporates will register their accounts online. Thereafter, they will pay the required amount for a vehicle disk renewal online. It will allocate this payment to their account. Once the payment is concluded, the vehicle licence disc will either be posted or couriered to the owner of the vehicle at an additional fee.

Motorists will renew and pay the prescribed fee online before presenting themselves at licensing centres for fingerprints, photos, and eye tests.

Online Registration and Notice of Change of Vehicle Ownership 

Participating financial institutions will register vehicles online (as titleholders.) This will eliminate registering at a registering authority. It will levy the system vehicle registration fee on all registrations performed by Financial Institutions, Motor Dealers, Insurance Companies and Large Fleet Operators. The online registration function will allow an approved entity the ability to register a vehicle to themselves as a titleholder.

It will ensure that the integrity of NaTIS information is enhanced and maintained. The process is also fully automated, representing a significant saving in costs for the old and new titleholders.

Payment for Online Crash Report 

In September 2019, the RTMC developed the Online Crash Reporting Application, which allows members of the public to report minor crashes online without having to visit a South African Police Service (SAPS) station. Additionally, this platform also allows members of the public to retrieve their crash information, and the same applies to insurance companies.
