It is all systems go in the Northern Cape for the renewal of motor vehicle licences at ten post offices.

The renewal of motor vehicle licences officially began on Friday (02/06) across the five districts of the province.

A multitude of clients were able to effortlessly access the service.

The aim is to establish a convenient and efficient service, resulting in shorter queues.

“We are happy that we can make strides in improving access to service delivery for our people and make it quick and efficient,” said the head of the Department of Transport, Safety and Liaison, Moeketsi Dichaba.

“People can now access the service for longer operating hours and on Saturdays, while spending shorter times in queues, as there are dedicated service points for renewal of motor vehicle licences at the post office.”

According to Dichaba, only the function of motor vehicle licence renewal has been relocated from the municipality to the post offices and nothing has changed about the requirements or process.

“Motorists still need their ID books or ID cards, a printed renewal notice and must pay the required fee. Clients who do not have a renewal notice can complete the relevant application forms obtainable at the post office,” said Dichaba.

Nkosinathi Tolom, head of the Commercial Business Unit at the South African Post Office, said the motor vehicle licence renewal service is already running in five other provinces.
