THE post office urges KwaZulu-Natal motorists to check their car licences prior to going on holiday.

Many motorists may not be aware that their car licence has expired or will expire while on holiday and may get a traffic fine for the infringe- ment.

There are currently 31 post office branches in KZN where vehicle owners may renew their vehicle licence. By law, vehicle licence renewal must be done in the province where the vehicle is registered and can thus not be done while on holiday in another province.

Geert Bataille, head of the SA Post Office’s retail division, says motorists must remember to take proof of residence and an identity document along when renewing a car licence. This is a legal requirement. Should motorists not have received a renewal notice, the renewal form (ALV) may be downloaded from

During the 2015/2016 financial year, more than 3,7 million motor vehicle licences were renewed at SA Post Office branches.

Motorists who have received a traffic fine issued in terms of the AARTO Act (Administrative Adjudication of Road Traffic Offences) may pay the traffic fine at any post office countrywide. - Supplied.
