The NaTIS is the national register and asset that stores, records, manages and enforces the requirements of the National Road Traffic Act (NRTA) and the National Road Traffic Regulations (NRTR). It provides for the registration and licensing of vehicles.
The government requires that drivers apply for a new license card four weeks before the expiry date.
Drivers who miss the deadline, will not be legally allowed to drive and run the risk of having their Car Insurance claim denied if their car is involved in an accident.
In this case, they must obtain a temporary driver’s licence at an additional cost while waiting for their official licence to be issued.
