How To Open a TIMS Account

The National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) has ordered the shutdown of the TIMS website. The eCitizen portal, which can be accessed at https://serviceportal.ntsa.go.ke/, will henceforth be the primary means of accessing all NTSA services.

TIMS stands for Transport Integrated Management System.

The National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) used this system in the past to oversee driver licensing, vehicle registrations, and inspections.

If you own a car, motorcycle, or are a driver or rider in Kenya, you had to have a TIMS account.

Okay! How did you open a TIMS account?

How You Opened a TIMS Account

Here are five simple steps on how you opened a TIMS account.

1. Visit The NTSA TIMS Account Portal

The following link was used to access the TIMS account portal: https://timsvirl.ntsa.go.ke/

2. Register Account

Click the “Register Account” button, located just below the “Sign in” button.

3. Registration Identification

Our main concern is setting up an account for a citizen of Kenya.

You would have selected one of the other alternatives if you weren’t a citizen.

Click the next button after selecting Individual and Citizen.

4. Personal Information
