NaTIS Has Been Upgraded To A Digital Portal – eNaTIS
NaTIS is an acronym that stands for National Traffic Information System. It is a national register and a law enforcement tool that was created to help the South Africa National Department of Transport improve transportation infrastructure in the country as NaTIS serves as a register, store of assets, and a tool used to enforce all rules of regulations of National Road Traffic Regulations and National Road Traffic Act.
NaTIS is responsible for the registration and licensing of drivers and vehicles in the country. It also helps to keep records for the South African Bureau of Standards (SABS) to ensure all registered vehicles meet the necessary standards. NaTIS also helps to prevent fraudulent vehicle registration and other irregularities.
Sadly, all of these responsibilities the NaTIS was saddled with were painstakingly done manually, making it a tedious task while also creating room for errors. So to improve their services, the name was changed to eNaTIS, and this change of name also translated to a change in the methods of operations. Instead of manually doing
everything, technology was introduced and is now used to make their services easier and more accurate.
What Can Be Done On eNaTIS And How Is It Better Than NaTIS?
The introduction of the eNATIS driver’s license scheme was intended to digitalize most, if not all, the functions of NaTIS by giving South Africans an online portal where most of their licensing needs will be handled – and to lessen the human traffic at NaTIS offices. Even though that intention is grinding slowly (but surely), here are some of the things that you can do on eNaTIS that makes it better than NaTIS:
- You can handle the registration of your vehicles online.
- You can handle the booking of your driver’s license online.
- The renewal of your driver’s license can also be done online.
- With the use of the FingerPrint system, identity fraud can now be eliminated with ease.
- eNaTIS provides updates to users about current fraudulent practices going on in the automobile industry.
- Users can assess road traffic service via ATMs and the internet.
- All traffic infringement and fines are recorded using the eNaTIS database.
- Implementation of electronic tagging of documents to help detect fraudulent driver’s license, vehicle license, or registration certificate.
