Its other services include to regulate public service vehicles, advise the Government on national policy with regard to the road transport sector and lastly, develop and implement road safety strategies.
The relocation comes soon after the authority upgraded its system and announced it would commence inspecting vehicles that are more than four years old from the date of manufacture on Kenyan roads.
In a letter signed by Interior and Citizen Services PS Paul Famba, all vehicles regardless of ownership will be inspected in line with Section 16 (2) of the Traffic Act.
This means the National Transport and Safety Authority will inspect almost all vehicles on the roads. There are more than 3.2 million vehicles on Kenyan roads.
“The Act specifically provides that every vehicle more than four years old from the recorded date of manufacture shall be subjected to inspection by the motor vehicle inspection unit,” he said in the memo dated May 10.
In 2019, NTSA issued tough rules on the motor vehicle inspection regulations in an effort to tame perennial road carnage.
