AARTO Training Overview
These training sessions unpack the Administrative Adjudication of Road Traffic Offences (AARTO) Act, 1998 as it applies to the various role players in an organisation. AARTO was initially planned for rollout on 1 July 2021 but will now be implemented in a phased system with the crucial Phase 4 due for implementation on 1 July 2022. This effectively means that the Points Demerits System (PDS) will be effective from 1 July 2022.
The potential impact of AARTO on a business could be severe, if there are widespread road traffic offences committed. This could result in suspension or even cancellation of drivers’ licenses which would be catastrophic especially for certain organisations e.g., commercial fleet owners, sales representatives, and others for whom possessing a valid driver’s license is essential to earn an income.
These AARTO training and awareness sessions are intended to assist organisations (especially those with large fleets) to understand the implications of AARTO on their business.

- AARTO Act, 1998 and associated regulations
