Matatu drivers to undergo mental tests every 3 years


The National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) has revealed that Matatu drivers have to undergo a mental and physical test after every 3 years in order for them to curb the huge number of lives lost through road accidents.

In the new regulations, all drivers of Public Service Vehicles (PSVs) will be required to also new training every three years.

The reforms will also include installation of new speed governors in PSVs that relay data in real time and that can detect any form of tampering.

Licenses for all driving schools are set to be revalidated following concerns that a majority of them are offering substandard training.
