National Transport Authority (NTSA) has continued its crackdown on unregistered driving schools that are denying the government revenue.
This follows new NTSA regulations that driving schools must pay for licenses for every new branch newly opened. This was not applicable in the past as they were only required to pay for only one license.
But despite being served with letters to pay, some schools have been operating illegally with students unaware of the new developments.
This prompted closure of some of the schools who failed to comply leading to the arrest of 5 schools managers.
The operation was led by NTSA lower central region Boss Kendi Mutuma who said the operation will continue to other parts of Kiambu and Muranga counties.
Mutuma who didn’t want to be interviewed advised the schools owners to follow the new regulations and comply promptly.
Those who were arrested were locked in Thika police station waiting to be prosecuted.
