New machines at traffic centres

2017-09-28 06:01

Applications for new driver’s licences and professional driver’s permits will now be fast tracked after the installation of three new machines in Uitenhage and eight in Korsten.

“Persistent requests to the Department of Transport to deal with outdated machines at the Traffic Departments have finally paid off with the installation of these machines,” said Member of the Mayoral Committee for Safety and Security, John Best.

“The Live Capturing Units (LCUs), used to capture appointments and applications for new driver’s licences and learner’s licences, are all outdated. They will be decommissioned at both the Uitenhage and the Korsten Traffic and Licencing Centres. The old machines will be replaced with new Live Enrolment Units.

“This will ultimately ensure that service delivery at our centres is improved and that long queues are a thing of the past. -Reporter
