Written answers (Question to Transport)

I am informed by the National Transport Authority (NTA) that as of the end of February this year, the total number of active SPSV vehicle licences is 22,810 and the total number of active SPSV driver licences is 33,717. 

I understand that a reliable count of inactive licences is not available, as this figure would change nearly every day due to the late renewal of some licences.
