The Traffic Department yesterday launched a number of e-services that would enable the public to access most traffic related services through the Internet.
Maj. Gen. Abdul Rahman Al-Muqbil, director general of the department, said the services would cover transfer of vehicle ownership, identifying actual owner, information on traffic fines and car insurance, and authorizing others to drive the car inside and outside the Kingdom.
Meanwhile, the department for motor vehicle periodic inspection (MVPI) said it would open a new inspection facility southwest of Riyadh.
“We have already started work on the new MVPI center located along Dairab Road. It will be completed in 15 months,” said Aidarous Al-Esae, the department’s director general.
He said the new center would have 10 tracks as well as traffic and insurance offices, parking for 200 vehicles and buildings for maintenance and support services. “The department has plans to establish two more MVPI centers in southeast and northwest of Riyadh,” Al-Esae said.
He disclosed plans to establish the second MVPI center in Jeddah, adding that it would be located on the Jeddah-Makkah Expressway.
“We are now in the final stage of awarding the Jeddah project,” he pointed out. Efforts are under way to set up the second MVPI center in Dammam and new centers in different parts of the Kingdom.
