The 'Vehicle Title', resulting from the unification of the Booklet and the Car Ownership Registration Title, was created by the Executive within the scope of the SIMPLIFICA project, in order to reduce bureaucracy, modernize and increase the efficiency of public services and make life easier to the citizen.
The new document allows for a single inspection action, carried out simultaneously by the National Police and the General Tax Administration, the Government explains in a statement to which VerAngola had access.
With this measure, the Executive also hopes to achieve an economic impact, as the document will speed up the registration of property, which, in turn, will be useful for presenting guarantees to commercial banks and other services.
Likewise, in addition to facilitating property registration, the advantages of the initiative include the security component for vehicle identification.
The cost of the 'Vehicle Title' is determined depending on the category of service requested. For the registration and initial registration of light cars, the driver pays 50,254 kwanzas or 51,512 kwanzas for the registration and initial registration of heavy cars. The same service for trailers costs 49,652 and for motorcycles 44,251 kwanzas.
The Directorate of Traffic and Road Safety (DSTR) is responsible for issuing the 'Vehicle Title', in an integrated process that also involves the Motor Vehicle Registration Office.
The aforementioned title does not remove the validity of the Car Registration Book and the Vehicle Ownership Title. Both documents remain valid for identifying the vehicle and determining its ownership. Therefore, the citizen does not need to go to the issuing offices to process the new document, which will coexist with the old document temporarily.
Initially, the issuance of the 'Vehicle Title' should only be made for new processes, requested from September 29th of this year, including requests for the issuance of duplicates presented in the days following the launch of the new document.
