Procedure to link and appoint examiner of vehicles

Before an examiner can be linked to all the Vehicle Testing Stations (VTS), the testing station proprietor who desires to appoint any examiner of vehicle at a testing station will have to submit the particulars of such examiner to the MEC (Department of Transport and Public Works) for approval in terms of the provisions of regulation 134 of the NRT Regulations.

The process is as follows:

  • The examiner obtains his diploma.
  • He applies for registration.
  • The Department issues the registration certificate (registration on NaTIS).
  • He or she applies for employment as an examiner at a VTS.
  • The proprietor of the VTS then applies for the appointment of the Examiner of Vehicles (EoV) to the MEC.
  • The proprietor submits all required documents such as South African Police Services (SAPS) clearance, copy of registration certificate, ID, driving licence and dimploma to this Department (MEC).
  • The MEC (delegated powers) gives permission for the appointment in terms of regulation 134.
  • Once the permission has been given, the link can be done.
