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.

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.
