RMI-VTA free safety campaign for festive season 2022


Have your car checked before your holiday trip.

Participating VTA/RMI vehicle testing stations around the country are offering motorists FREE safety critical checks on their vehicles from 28 November 2022 until 9 December 2022. The campaign aims to help motorists make safety their first priority this festive season.

Roads during the holidays are notoriously dangerous and extra precautions need to be taken. It is therefore essential to have a multi-check on your vehicle to identify potential hazards and prevent additional damage before it happens.

The RMI-VTA continue 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

  • All lights
