TRA Assist Services

home drive

Home Drive Services

NB: For both services (Own Vehicle and Taxi Service) which fall under the Home Drive service, the driver/s might leave after 10-15 minutes if you are not present for collection and have not communicated with them as to why you may not be ready for collection as arranged.

Option 1: Own Vehicle

A designated driver service that will ensure that members are safe after a night out, with them being taking home safely in their own vehicle. A pair of drivers will arrive and one will drive with the client as the other follows. Generally, if the client is a female, a female driver will drive with her.

Drivers are equipped with a cell phone application to determine the exact location, as well as the personal information and destination to where the client needs to be transported to. Home Drive will safely transport clients within a 50km radius of city centres in Durban, Johannesburg, Pretoria, Cape Town, Port Elizabeth, East London, George and Nelspruit.
  • Access to 6 free trips per policy per annum.
  • Available to each member and up to a maximum of two of their guests that can be collected from a single pickup point and transported to a single drop-off point.
  • In the event where you own a larger vehicle and can seat more than 2 guests, additional passengers will be accommodated for, provided there are seatbelts for all the passengers in your car.
operating hours
Operating Hours

The service can only be utilised from 18h00 until 03h00. The last available booking time is 01h00 (peak periods) or 02h00 (off peak periods).

Additional Charges

If you exceed the number of total covered trips, you may continue to use the service at your own expense (±R450 cash per additional trip). If your trip exceeds 50km, payment for the additional distance will be ±R10 per KM. The user should agree that they will pay these amounts and they need to pay them to the driver on collection or they cannot utilise the service.

peak periods
Peak Periods & Public Holidays

Please try to book 48 hours in advance where possible and up to no less than 2 hours in advance in case of last minute arrangements. Peak period times are Thursday evenings to Sunday mornings as well as public holidays (the night before and on the day) and in some instances major public events that occur within the service area, for example sporting events and concerts.


Bookings can be cancelled up until 60 minutes before the arranged collection time. Any booking cancelled within 60 minutes of the collection time will be deducted from your total covered trips or billed at the full rate.

Option 2: Uber Taxi Service

If you do not have your own vehicle that you want driven, an Uber can be dispatched to your location.

TRA Assist Testimonial

Dave used the TRA Assist Panic Button to get his wife safely to Hospital. You can too.

On the 4th of March this year at about 6h00 my wife called me from the bathroom as she had lost the feeling in her legs and was in distress. I went to help her but was unable to assist.

I have the TRA Assist mobile app on my cell. I pressed the panic button on the app and TRA’s partners, ituAssist, responded within seconds. I explained my dilemma and agreed with them that an ambulance would be required. They came back to me and said that an ambulance had been dispatched. The Paramedics made contact with me to receive directions and I could hear that ituAssist was continually part of the conversation. The ambulance arrived half an hour later, and my wife was at the hospital trauma unit a half hour after that.

My association with TRA could not have been better. Their app worked perfectly and comes with my heartfelt recommendation.

Thanks to TRA Assist for helping my wife!
