The government has warned that there will be no further extensions for citizens wanting to renew their driver’s licence after the latest grace period extension.

 


At the midpoint of March 2022, there were more than 1.5 million backlogs related to driver's license cards in South Africa. A large contributor to these backlogs was due to the country’s single machine being away for repairs.


Renewing your drivers licence in South Africa has become a challenge in recent years due to a number of factors. The Department of Transport have introduced a number of measures to help tackle the issues. 


Motorists will be breathing a sigh of relief as the Minister of Transport made an announcement related to the driver's licence renewal period.


The world is changing so naturally the way we do things will change as well. This is true when it comes to renewing your vehicle licence disc.


Motorists can breathe a sigh of relief after the Minister of Transport Fikile Mbalula announced that drivers license renewals will be extended to the end of March 2022. The grace period for motorists to renew their expired drivers’ licence cards was to conclude on 31 August 2021.


The Department of Transport has warned motorists that the grace period for the renewal of driver's licenses will end on 31 August 2021. The grace period was initially instituted to combat the large backlog that was created by the Covid-19 lockdown and problems with the department's online system.
