Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) is continuously conducting inspection campaigns to verify the compliance with the preventive health measures at service provider centres including vehicle testing and registration facilities and driving institutes.
“Site visits had been densely carried out at service provider centres during these exceptional circumstances and implemented inspectional tours, focusing on how service provider centres follow precautionary and preventive measures against COVID-19 outbreak that support the monitoring plans of the department.
"We carried out 1000 field inspections covering vehicles testing and registration sites during April and May to monitor the preventive health precautions at service provider centres. Inspection campaigns spotted 24 violations regarding incompliance with preventive measures against coronavirus and other violations,” said Mohammed Nabhan, Director of Licensing Activities Monitoring.
“Due to the status quo, field inspections and monitoring teams took strict measures on violating centres and stressed the importance of full compliance with instructions and circulars of RTA’s Licensing Agency. In this connection, new mechanisms of the monitoring plans of the department are in place to ensure the continuity of the service provider centres compliance with the health precautionary and preventive measures against COVID-19 outbreak all over the year,” he confirmed.
“RTA is very serious about taking maximum precautions across all service outlets. It will spare no effort to protect the health and safety of both clients and employees in these facilities against the outbreak of Covid-19. Such efforts signal RTA’s active role in implementing the national programmes to fight this global pandemic.”
