Motor vehicle licences in the Northern Cape can now be renewed at several branches of the South African Post Office.

To improve service delivery and accessibility for the renewal of vehicle licences, the Northern Cape MEC for Transport, Safety and Liaison, Lebogang Motlhaping, launched the relocation of the renewal of these licences from municipalities to the Post Office on Friday, 1 June, in Kuruman.

“The first phase of the relocation of the service commenced on 1 June 2017 at ten post office outlets in Barkly West, Brandvlei, Calvinia, Keimoes, Kakamas, Kenhardt, Kathu, Olifantshoek, Loeriesfontein and Upington. We are rolling out the service in 15 more post offices.

“The service will now be available in Brits­town, Danielskuil, De Aar, Groblershoop, Hartswater, Hopetown, Jan Kempdorp, Kuruman, Petrus­ville, Port Nolloth, Postmasburg, Prieska, Richmond, Springbok and Victoria West,” he said.

Vehicle owners will be able to renew their vehicle licences at any of the 25 post offices offering the func­tion in the province and will no longer be restricted to municipal areas.

Mothlaping said the purpose for the relocation of the function is to improve service delivery, reduce time clients spend in queues and increase accessibility through longer trading hours, including Saturdays.

In addition to this, the Post Office has a dedicated service point and electronic funds transfer services, meaning clients do not need to carry cash.

“The department rolled out the first phase of the project at ten post offices across the five districts of the province which gave us an opportunity to teeth out challenges we might have encountered prior to rolling out this second phase,” Mothlaping said.
