With over 2,4 million motorists renewing their license discs annually, this service can enable them to save time by avoiding long queues, fines, penalties for late renewal and help to mitigate the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Sipho Silinda, FNB Public Sector CEO says, “We are delighted to partner with RTMC to make this service possible. Covid-19 has accelerated growth in the digital and e-commerce sectors, with more consumers preferring to shop and access essential services online. By adding a digital payment option for motorists, RTMC aims to reduce cash-handling risks for all persons involved, including that of South Africans. This will assist in reducing operational costs and pass these savings to South Africans.”

Motorists will be required to log in on the Natis platform, select ‘View Motor Renewals’, choose the licence disc/car, capture card details of the respective bank and pay. Once payment has been made, motorists will have a choice to have the car license disc couriered to their address of choice or get it printed at the nearest driver's licence testing centre.

The Road Traffic Management Corporation encourages motorists to use the online facility on the Natis platform to verify and update their addresses to ensure that the licence discs are delivered to the correct residential address.
