The National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) Rolls Out New Number Plates.
The National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) has rolled out new look number plates for container freight stations, garages and towing companies.
In a meeting attended by Interior Cabinet Secretary, Fred Matiang’i, NTSA unveiled the new look plates on Friday, January 28.
The new set of plates are “KC” for container freight stations, “KG” for garages and “KT” for towing companies.
In pictures seen by the media, the new plates are white in colour on a light green background, resembling those initially used by the Municipal Councils.
CS Matiangi was accompanied by CAS Hussein Dado, Interior Principal Secretary, Karanja Kibicho, Inspect General of Police Hilary Mutyambai and the Director General Financial Reporting Centre (FRC), Saitoti Maika.
Members of the public who wish to apply for the new KG plate license for garage and tow trucks will be required to pay Ksh18,550.

Last week the NTSA announced it was working on a new system as part of a crackdown targeting all motorists in Kenya.
The authority indicated that the new system is aimed at harmonising and synchronising the digital system under Transport Integrated Management System (TIMS) to provide information regarding all vehicles on Kenyan roads.
This comes after the revelation that some unroadworthy vehicles, which had been flagged off the road, had sneaked back into the transport sector causing a spike in accidents.
NTSA Director of Registration and Licensing, Christopher Wanjau, explained that some of the unroadworthy vehicles used duplicate number plates to operate undetected.
