RSTA extends deadline for road licence payment

JIMMY CHIBUYE, Lusaka
THE Road Transport and Safety Agency (RTSA) has extended the period for motorists to pay road licences for next year from today up to the end of January.
RTSA acting director and chief executive officer Gladwell Banda said in a statement issued yesterday that the extension has been necessitated by a tremendous increase in motor vehicles in Zambia.
“The Road Transport and Safety Agency (RTSA) has given all motorists and Public Service Vehicle (PSV) operators a grace period within which they may acquire relevant licences for the year 2015,” Mr Banda said.
He said it is evident that motorists and PSV operators around the country are still in the process of acquiring licences such as road tax, road service licences and identity certificates for 2015.
Mr Banda said during this period, no enforcement for the validity of the same licences will be effected until after the grace period.
“In view of the foretold, the RTSA, like in the past years, is providing this grace period to accommodate the licensing needs of all motorists,” he said.
Mr Banda has appealed to motorists and PSV operators to utilise the period wisely and comply with legal requirements.
