In Cotonou, the National Land Transport Agency (Anatt) announced in a press release that it will soon launch the “Zero unregistered motorbikes in circulation in Benin” operation.
No more unregistered motorbikes on Benin’s roads. This means that motorcyclists whose machines do not have number plates will now find it difficult to move freely.
Thus, within the framework of the imminence of this operation “Zero unregistered motorbikes in circulation in the Republic of Benin”, the General Director of the National Land Transport Agency (Anatt), Richard Dada, invites all users who have filed registration files for two-wheeled vehicles, motor tricycles and quadricycles to approach the departmental warehouses for the withdrawal of their registration cards and the fixing of their number plates.
The same press release also states that the persons concerned may present themselves at the site from the moment they receive the said press release.
In addition, since 2017, the authorities have made the Zero Unregistered Motorcycles in Traffic operation a primary struggle in Benin. Motorcyclists are therefore required to register their vehicles. And each motorbike owner must pay 11,500 FCFA excluding tax to fulfil this obligation. Road users who do not comply with this obligation are often solely responsible for the inconvenience caused by random checks with the Public Security Forces.
