The South African National Roads Agency Limited (Sanral) on Thursday dismissed claims that licences will be confiscated and vehicles impounded if motorists had outstanding toll fees.
Draft amendments to the Road Traffic Regulations Act aim to give Sanral officials the right to stop and search vehicles.
Sanral's Alex van Niekerk said motorists will not be penalised for not having an e-tag.
He said the agency will also be checking if e-tags are fitted and used correctly.
According to van Niekerk, motorists will still be billed if they pass a gantry without a valid tag or e-toll account.
On Thursday, Sanral tested e-tags at various gantries across the province.
Motorists will have to fork out 30 cents per kilometre for the use some of the province’s freeways from the end of April.
