Have your car checked before your holiday trip!!!!
Participating VTA vehicle testing stations around the country are offering motorists FREE safety critical checks on their vehicles from 3 April 2023 to 6 April 2023. The campaign aims to help motorists make safety their first priority this Easter.
Roads during the easter period are notoriously dangerous and extra precautions need to be taken. It is therefore essential to have a safety check on your vehicle to identify potential hazards and prevent additional damage before it happens.
The VTA continues to give their full commitment to Road Safety in South Africa. To locate your nearest participating Testing Station, call your regional RMI office on the numbers given below.
NOTE: This check is not a roadworthiness test, but rather a Safety Critical Test to ensure your vehicle is free from defects before you embark on your festive season journey, with the aim being to reduce the number of road deaths this holiday season.
Please note that there are currently no participants in Limpopo, Mpumalanga, Free State and Eastern Cape
List of safety critical items to be checked:
- All lights
- Seat Belts
- All Tyres
- All Brakes
