An announcement by Minister of Transport, Fikile Mabalula in a Covid-19 level 4 lockdown briefing are that driver’s licence and vehicle testing centres, as well as driving schools will be permitted to operate but with restrictions.

“We will issue directions to limit the daily number of people that can be attended too, while restricting bookings to online platforms,” said the minister.

Driver’s licence testing centres and vehicle testing centres will gradually re-open for essential service workers only to renew their driver’s and vehicle licences.

Also, people whose vehicles are at a mechanic for repairs or service may arrange to get them back if the vehicles are to be used for essential service purposes, according to the Director General of Transport, Alec Moemi.
