Zinara to de-register unlicensed vehicles

HARARE - All vehicles that have not been licensed for a period exceeding two years will be de-registered from the Central Vehicle Registry (CVR) database, government has said.

Ministry of Transport, Zimbabwe National Road Administration (Zinara) and the CVR, in a joint statement issued yesterday, advised that all vehicles must be registered by November 30, 2014.

“To avoid de-registration of your vehicles, we appeal to our valued motoring public to comply by ensuring that their affected vehicles are properly licensed during the window period running prior to or from Saturday 01 November 2014 to Sunday 30 November 2014,” the statement said.

In terms of the vehicle registration and licensing regulations statutory instrument 13:14 section 12 paragraphs (c) and (d), the registrar may, if according to his records a registered vehicle has not been licensed or exempted for a period exceeding two years, cancel the registration of the vehicle concerned

“Once a vehicle has been de-registered, its re-registration will include the submission of a certificate of roadworthiness from the Vehicle Inspection Depot (VID) and police clearance,” the statement says.

“Re-registration fees of $160 for motor vehicles and $140 for motorcycles and or trailers at CVR only. Settlement of outstanding Zinara vehicle licence arrears will also be required.”

Zimbabwe’s vehicle population currently stands at 1,2 million, according to the CVR.

Zinara has in the past warned motorist to make timely licence payments.

According to Zinara, the number of unregistered vehicles in the institution’s database were 170 000.

Some vehicle owners took licences once and never went back to service the licences.

Zinara, which recently hiked vehicle registration and licensing fees, defended the move saying it was in line with government’s new statutory instrument number 141 of 2013 which was gazetted in September.

Zinara reviewed licensing fees for haulage truck trailers from $50 to $130 while the horse truck is now paying between $130 to $140 up from $80.

Ordinary motorists are now paying between $30 and $40 up from $20 depending on the weight of the vehicle.

Licence fees for buses are now pegged at $120 up from $80.

It is just a pain to note that for many years we have a government against the people. Zinara recently hiked toll fees by 100%, as if that was not enough they have hiked vehicle licensing fees again. In these difficult times, the goverment is milking its dorcile people. Obert Mpofu, what kind of minister is that? Zimbaweans must woke up or else this goverment will be suckling blood from its citizens.
