Owners of vehicles in Rubavu and the neighbouring districts no longer have to commute to Kigali to have their automobiles inspected as the Mobile motor vehicle inspection lane shifts its services to the Western Province.
According to the Director of the Motor Vehicle Inspection Centre , Chief Superintendent of Police (CSP) Emmanuel Kalinda, the Mobile Test Lane will be stationed in Rubavu effective September 14.
“The mobile test lane rotates in different provinces as part of Rwanda National Police’s programme to bring services closer to the people. This time, it will be stationed in Rubavu for ten days to serve vehicles in and around the district,” CSP Kalinda said.
According to CSP Kalinda, the Mobile Test Lane has the capacity to inspect up to 100 vehicles per day.
Currently, with three lanes Remera MIC, Mobile Test Lane and one lane at Police Training School (PTS) Gishari in Rwamagana District to serve the Eastern Province, the inspections have increased to about 800 daily.
RNP plans to have the two new lanes fully functional by November at Remera MIC and establish others in regions, to service the increasing number of automobiles in the country.
