Sources in the Traffic, Vehicles and Vehicles Department denied any decision to raise registration fees and other services. And it confirmed that the closure of its centers in front of car registration and mechanic payment transactions (it was limited yesterday to the issuance of market certificates) is due to the failure to complete the trial period for the new technical systems, explaining that the amendment affects the method of pricing cars. This is a matter that the authority has been working on for three years in cooperation with the customs and concerned departments, and it has nothing to do with the crisis or the period after the rise in the price of the dollar. The sources said that the approved dollar price for cars will remain the official price of the dollar, explaining that the new mechanism may allow to reduce registration costs, not vice versa, because it sets fairer standards for pricing cars annually.
Accordingly, the sources confirmed that the closure is due to the need for more training for employees, and to address some of the gaps that appeared in the program after its launch, and to return to work next Tuesday.
