Marlboro licensing station offline

2013-01-08 12:09

Johannesburg - The computer systems at the Marlboro licensing and testing station in Johannesburg were offline on Tuesday, said metro police.

Chief Superintendent Wayne Minnaar said while these would not affect driver and learner licence tests, motorists would not be able to register their vehicles at the station.

"Vehicle registration can be done at any of the other licensing and testing stations in Roodepoort, Midrand, Randburg or Langlaagte stations," he said.

Technicians were working on fixing the system as soon as possible.

    This is only half a story. Most of the stations in Gauteng are offline. Bedfordview and Edenvale among them. Whats more, people standing in the queues said its been like that for most of December!

    I didn't realise that after going to Marlboro 8 times to get one license there was any difference between offline and online. As far as I could see the staff were entirely offline all the time.

      Funniest-comment-yet! Like when the post office workers went on a slow strike...no one realised it for 2 weeks.

    And what about the Bedfordview, Germiston and one other that was off line yesterday? No reporting on that. I was at Edenvale for my drivers and people from the 3 other stations was there....

    Unacceptable. Please sack the management, and employ someone who can deliver this essential public service. And no thanks for wasting 5 hours of my day today, Jhb Traffic Dept. Let's hope its not Groundhog Day tomorrow!
