The National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) now says all motor vehicle owners will be required to acquire a Third Licence Sticker which takes effect on July 1. This is also referred to as the Third Licence Plate Sticker, whose role is to provide a durable link between the vehicle and the number plate.
“All new and second hand motor vehicle registrations will be required to acquire the Third Licence Sticker, which they will stick on their vehicles,” said director general Francis Meja.

“In Phase Two we plan to issue the third licence sticker to all vehicles that will undergo motor vehicle inspection from January 2018. While in Phase Three, we will collaborate with the insurance industry to facilitate acquisition of the stickers by the private motorists while they renew their motor vehicle insurances,” said Meja at the authority’s head office yesterday.
He said implementation of the Traffic Registration Plate rules 2016 under legal notice No. 62 contained in a Gazette Notice of April 15, 2016 would complement earlier efforts by NTSA to enhance safety on the roads.
“The authority notifies members of the public that with effect from July 1, 2017 all new second hand motor vehicle registrations will be required to acquire the Third Licence Sticker,” said Meja. The license applicants are required to register on the Transport Integrated Management System (TIMS). The sticker will cost Sh700.
