Have you heard of the National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA)? Do you know its mandate in Kenya? NTSA is a statutory body established to bring about sanity on our roads. It brings together under one roof the roles of motor vehicle registration, transport licensing and motor vehicle inspection, road safety, driver testing and to some extent, traffic law enhancement. Read here for more on how to register on NTSA portal to receive NTSA services quickly and with utmost convenience.
The National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) introduced a new online platform-Transport Integrated Management System (TIMS) where you can register and transfer your motor vehicle. NTSA TIMS was launched at the end of 2016 and had initially been available to car dealers. If you are selling or buying a motor vehicle, you will need an NTSA TIMS account. This is because NTSA declared that all motor vehicle transfer would be done online. This requires both the seller and the buyer to have an account on the NTSA portal.

NTSA TIMS has addressed the challenge of poor ICT systems that offer no linkage between payment and service delivery. NTSA portal also offers transparency in the registration process and has helped to cut off brokers who took advantage of citizens and made money from them. It has created a secure process for the registration of vehicles and the transfer of ownership. The NTSA TIMS account registration process that requires the information of the serial number on one’s identity card and not the identification number serves as a security measure to ensure that one cannot create an account using an already registered identification number, e-mail address, or mobile number. TIMS provides an automated transport system which has improved the flow of information in the transport sector and strengthened the traffic police department.
