The Limpopo Department of Transport and Community Safety encourages drivers whose licenses are due for renewal to visit their nearest stations to renew before the grace period ends.
The deadline for license renewal has been extended from 1st to 15th April by the Minister of Transport. Limpopo accounts for a backlog of 131 732 licenses that must be renewed by the end of this week.
The Licensing stations have extended working hours to accommodate hundreds of people before the set deadline. Limpopo currently has six centers that are open on weekends until 14h00 to accommodate those who are unable to renew during the week.
The centres include Aganang, Prakitseer, Mutale, Polokwane and Thohoyandou. Makhado station does not have weekend services, but it has extended services until 18h00 midweek.
DRIVERS LICENSES RENEWAL
“The department is aware of the challenges that applicants are encountering at various centres.”
The system challenge reported in various centres is receiving attention and the Road Traffic Management Corporation is working around the clock to ensure that all machines are up and running.
Drivers are urged to exercise maximum patience at the centres when they encounter delays caused by the NaTIS system.
