JOHANNESBURG — Road Transport Management Corporation (RTMC) CEO Makhosini Msibi has refuted claims that the Natis traffic system is not functional.

The past few weeks have seen protests at test stations around Gauteng as driving instructors were prevented from making block bookings for students.

Transport Minister Fikile Mbalula visited the Akasia Licensing Center in Centurion on Monday but was met with an angry mob.

It’s been more than two weeks since driving instructors in Gauteng began protesting the online booking system, calling on the government to end it.

Despite the significant backlog in driving license renewals and people complaining about the system, Minister Mbalula said an extension for drivers due to renew their license was not possible.

“The question of the machine caused a stir. I addressed this. The renewal will not be extended. will renew,” the minister said.

But Mbalula said he would meet with driving schools soon to find solutions to some of the issues they had raised.
