RTMC refutes claims that motorists need to pay for a booking slot to renew their driver’s license

VAAL TRIANGLE - The Road Traffic Management Corporation (RTMC) refuted claims that motorists will have to pay R250 to book a slot at a Driving License Testing Centre. Reports have been circulating on social media that motorists will have to pay R250 to book their slot, and then pay the transaction fees when renewing their driver’s licenses. The Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse (Outa) on Tuesday claimed it was a new fee proposed in the draft Road Traffic Management Corporation (RTMC) Regulations 2021, which amend the 2007 regulations, and the announcement got social media users hot under the collar. However, RTMC spokesperson Simon Zwane said Outa was mistaken. Zwane said this is an existing fee - the only difference is that motorists will be able to pay it online, if they so choose, rather than to go and queue at a driving licence testing centre (DLTC). He said it is definitely not new.
