How to use NATIS Online Booking License System

Published by

South Africans can now easily schedule appointments for traffic registers, license renewals, learner’s licence tests, driving tests, and PrDP applications through NaTIS (National Traffic Information System). The NaTIS website now makes it simple to schedule an appointment for one or more of the aforementioned services.

Prior to the introduction of NaTIS’s online booking system, the only way to obtain a service from the department of traffic was to visit their offices. This resulted in uncontrollable queues, and many people would go for days without receiving the assistance they required due to departmental overcrowding.

The NaTIS system has aided in ensuring that traffic departments make the best use of their facilities. Since the NaTIS system assists in identifying open slots and free days to book, human and capital resources are now used as efficiently as possible.

Since some senior citizens in South Africa find the NaTIS online booking system difficult to use, the traffic department has made an exception for those over the age of 60. Those over the age of 60 can go to their local driving license testing center without making an appointment.

Before booking a visit to a Local Driving License Testing Center, you must first register with NaTIS. Individuals and businesses can use the NaTIS system to make reservations. We outline the requirements needed by individuals and businesses to register on the NaTIS system below.

Requirements to register on NaTIS for individuals

  • Identification, such as a South African ID, a traffic registration number, or a foreign ID, is required.
  • Personal information such as initials, surname, gender, date of birth, and nationality
  • Address (postal and residential addresses) (postal and residential addresses),
  • Contact information such as a cell phone number and an email address, as well as
  • Password and username

Requirements to register on NaTIS for businesses

  • Company details which include the company name,
  • Proxy details which include identification such as traffic register number, foreign ID number or SA ID number,
  • Company information that includes company address, registration information and more, and
  • Username and password

You can now begin booking after registering on the NaTIS system as an individual or a business. Account holders can book the following options through NaTIS:

  • Learner’s License test,
  • Driving license test,
  • Driving license card renewal, and
  • PrDP application.
