The transport authorities in KwaZulu-Natal have installed a new software on the testing stations computers to prevent corruption and fraud which engulfed the facilities.
The official launch of the system was held on Tuesday, however, the program has worked secretly for some time and even led to several arrests in the province with the suspects having gone through their first court hearing.
The modern identity-tracking software developed by Licence Pro follows every step the person makes when they walk into the testing station.
“From the moment a person walks into the centre it captures your picture and, you have to use your fingerprints to be logged into the system. So whenever you come to the centre it recognizes you and brings up all the information it has about you. When testing for drivers licence, the system is connected everywhere in the centre including the cameras outside, if there is a dispute it will pick it up,” MEC for Transport, Community Safety and Liaison, Bheki Ntuli, explained.
The official further added the program was unique and would only be used in KZN.
