All motorists and Public Service Vehicle Operators have been give an extension of up to 14th July, 2017 to pay for the required licenses.

Therefore, there will be no enforcement of the validity of said documents by the RTSA and the Zambia Police until the stated grace period expires.

The Agency is providing this grace period to accommodate the licensing needs of all motorists in view of the role out of the RTSA’s new system – E- ZAMTIS to the outsourced partners, Zambia Postal Services (ZAMPOST) and Zambia State Insurance Corporation (ZSIC) as well as exploring other avenues for payment of road tax.

The role out of the system will be completed in the shortest possible time. So far ten (10) out the fifty five (55) outsourced partners have been connected.

However, the extension does not include the certificate of fitness and the test certificates as the two relate to road-worthiness and the safety of the vehicle.
