RTSA grants road tax payment extension


THE Road Transport and Safety Agency (RTSA) has given a grace period of 30 days within which motorists should acquire motor vehicle and trailer licences (road tax) and road service licences for the year 2016.
Senior public relations manager Mercy Mwila said in a statement in Lusaka that the grace period is from January 1 to 30.
Ms Mwila said RTSA hopes that the public will utilise the extension to comply with the law.
“During this period, no enforcement for the validity of road tax will be effected until the end of the grace period. RTSA, like in the past years, is providing this grace period to accommodate the licensing needs of all motorists,” Ms Mwila said.
She said the extension does not include the certificate of fitness and the test certificates as the two relate to road-worthiness.
Ms Mwila urged motorists to renew and pay for motor vehicle and trailer licences for the year 2016 to avoid inconveniences.
She said no grace period will be provided for the payment of road licences after January 30, 2016.
“On the issue of printing of driver’s licences, we wish to assure the nation that we will soon normalise the situation beginning of 2016. All those awaiting their licences should contact the agency to ascertain whether their licences have been printed rather than visit the stations,” Ms Mwila said.
