Rental firms help LTA

IN an effort to stamp out the illegal operation of some private vehicle rental companies, LTA will work with registered car rental companies.

Authority spokesman Iliesa Sokia said these companies raised their concerns about such operators who were destroying their business.

He said an association for registered car rental companies had established its own ground network that would feed the parent body with real time and accurate information that may further assist the LTA.

"Once information is verified, the LTA is expected to proceed with a massive nationwide operation," Mr Sokia said.

"LTA met recently with the national association president Mohammed Sareem to raise their grievances with the authority due to the sudden increase of illegal rental companies engaged in the business.

"LTA is also expected to conduct its own investigation against suspected illegal operators by executing an external audit."

Mr Sokia said the authority would demand business licences and rental permit documents be produced; failure to do so would result in the de-registration of the vehicle and its owner referred to the relevant authority.
