WINDHOEK; The Namibia Traffic Information System (NaTIS) yesterday moved one step closer to improved services with the introduction of the eNaTIS service.
The electronic traffic information system (eNaTiS) was obtained from the South African Government free of charge for the purposes of implementing the objectives of the Southern African Development Community (SADC) Protocol for Harmonising Transport Communication and Meteorology within the region.
Yesterday’s launch will see the first phase of the system introduced, which will make it easier for drivers to obtain or renew their vehicle or drivers’ licenses.
This phase enables drivers to renew their vehicle or drivers’ licenses at any town in the country, provided there is a NaTIS office at the town.
Speaking at the introduction of the system here yesterday, Minister of Works and Transport Erkki Nghimtina applauded NaTIS for introducing the eNaTIS system, saying this will enable both South Africa and Namibia to move forward in sharing knowledge and information to improve local and regional efficiency.
The second phase, which will enable aspirant drivers to register online for their learnersâ license tests, will be implemented early next year.
