NaTIS launches online service

MOTORISTS across Namibia are now able to obtain motor vehicle licences and driving licences online instead of queuing at NATIS service centres for long hours.

The online services will transform not only the way Namibia Traffic Information System (NaTIS) does business, but also how they interact with their customers.

Minister of Works and Transport John Mutorwa, said that NaTIS services are a basic need for people and bringing it closer to the people is part of government commitment to ensure efficient and timely service delivery.

 

 

Mutorwa made the remarks during the official launching of NaTIS online services at Ondangwa on Wednesday.

He said that the target is to ensure that services are brought closer to those who need them.

“This service is a continuation of the government’s program to bring excellent and convenient service to the vehicle owners and the nation at large,” he said.

He added that it is also part of a decongestion strategy at NaTIS offices, crafted by the Road Authority by providing automated services thereby reducing the number of people in the queues.

He emphasised that the RA, with its promise of “Safe roads to prosperity”, is there to ensure that road designs and maintenance incorporates safety aspects to eliminate vehicle accidents and loss of lives in the country.

Mutorwa also stated that the online vehicle licence renewal service will contribute to the provision of effective and efficient services to vehicle owners and help them comply with the road traffic and transport legislation to operate validly licensed vehicles on the road.

Oshana governor Elia Irimari spoke at the same event. He said that government services have to be easily accessible and readily available.

“This is why the digital economy is becoming increasingly important in terms of offering an equitable recovery system that is more equitable and inclusive,” he said.

Irimari added that the online platform has been developed to serve road users and its launching signifies government commitment to advancing modern technology, implementing and adapting to new digital systems in the delivery of its mandate.
