JOHANNESBURG – The Gauteng Transport Department says it has signed an agreement between the provincial branch of the National Association of Driving Schools and the RTMC which will provide a common platform for all parties to address grievances regarding the service.

Earlier this month, disgruntled driving school operators closed test centers in Tshwane over the e-Natis online booking system. They said they were worried it wouldn’t work for the public.

Transportation MEC Jacob Mamabolo held a series of meetings following the violent disruption of services.

Gauteng Department of Transport spokesman Theo Nkonki said the deal reached allowed for better communication, cooperation and stability in the sector.

“The big problem is that the system has been changed and those changes, I don’t think there has been enough consultation with stakeholders to understand what the changes are so that they can adapt to those changes” , Nkonki said.

Nkonki said RTMC had agreed to a temporary relaxation of security measures on the Natis system that would allow driving schools to make reservations while they work on a more permanent solution.
