FNB has added a new feature to its mobile banking app called Nav Car (or nav» Car, to use its nomenclature) that lets consumers manage and monitor the vehicles they own.
If the vehicles are financed through WesBank users can also view details about vehicle values, repayments and get valuations. Perhaps the most basic, and most helpful, feature is the option to add your car licence, get reminders when renewals are due… and get the renewed licence delivered anywhere in South Africa (though there’s a R200 delivery fee).
It’s also possible to pay for licence renewals using the app, and to add family members’ licences so you can have those renewed, too. Users can also pay traffic fines using the service. Those customers with finance through WesBank can also view things like their NaTis documents and store other car-related vehicles in the app.
An insurance-like service called “On-road Protect” that costs R95/month allows for up to five free licence disc deliveries a year (though you’ll still have to pay the actual renewal fee, of course), the automatic negotiation of fine discounts (via a third party called Road Protect), bail assistance at roadblocks for minor infringements, and help with Road Accident Fund (RAF) claims or tyre repair claims due to pothole damage.
The new feature should start appearing in the FNB mobile banking apps today.
