The Free State Department of Police, Roads and Transport announced that licensing offices will open on 1 June to render services to the public.

Briefing the media on Monday (25/05), the MEC for Police, Roads and Transport, Sam Mashinini, said centres will align with level 3 shutdown regulations that the national government have put in place to curb the spread of the coronavirus (Covid-19).

High capacity offices (servicing up to 180 clients per day) will open on 1 June and these are Bloemfontein, Botshabelo, Bothaville, Virginia, Welkom, Kroonstad, Parys, Sasolburg, Bethlehem, Harrismith and Phuthaditjhaba.

Medium capacity offices (servicing up to 90 clients per day) will open on 8 June in the following towns: Ladybrand, Thaba Nchu, Boshoff, Hoopstad, Ventersburg, Zastron and Steynsrus.

Low capacity offices (servicing up to 20 clients per day) will open on 15 June.

Mashinini said strict security protocols and health and safety regulations will apply across all service centres.

He also added that measures will ensure the public adhere to social distancing and proper wearing of face masks.

He said motor trade number licences that expired during the lockdown period, 26 March to 31 May, are deemed to be valid and are extended for a further grace period of six months from the date of the publication of these instructions.
