PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD 
The purpose of this unit standard is to ensure that credited learners are able to capture, assess and maintain information on a national traffic information system. The use of national traffic information systems to regulate and monitor driving licences, permits, motor vehicle ownership, and to authorise vehicle roadworthiness, enhances safety and security in society. Achieving the competencies in this unit standard will enable the individual to contribute towards economic transformation by means of crime prevention, law enforcement, protection of property and the generation of revenue.

This unit standard also allows for transformation with the traffic policing profession, as learners become models for other learners. This attracts quality people and allows for the aspirations of people to be part of the traffic policing profession. The recognition of prior learning will formalise informal and non-formal leaning and learners will be able to obtain credits towards a national qualification.
