The Land Transport Authority has entered into a contract with five additional inspection centres.

The contract was signed yesterday at the LTA boardroom confirming the compliance agencies as Motor Vehicle Inspection Agencies (AMVIA). They have met the 85 per cent compliance threshold.

Land Transport Authority (LTA) chairperson Vijay Maharaj said: “The outsourcing of vehicle inspections will ensure transparency and enable the LTA to fulfill to its maximum potential and its role as a regulatory body.

“The project for outsourcing of vehicle inspections to reputable private companies is also aimed at enhancing productivity and improving vehicle inspection standards through the use of technology and equipment.

Last year, he said the LTA signed contracts with six centres. However, he added that vehicle inspections would start once the agency had met 100 per cent compliance.

“The LTA acknowledges the efforts of the complying agencies as they have been very cooperative throughout the process and have invested time, effort and money to comply with the LTA’s standards,” Mr Maharaj said.

“The main goal for LTA is to improve its services and decentralise vehicle inspections in order to achieve more efficient customer turnaround time.”

LTA is working on the first and second phases of the AMVIA outsourcing, which have been awarded through due tender process.

The third phase will start next year.
