The lockdown has made it difficult for South African motorists to renew expired licences, and the government has published various regulations to extend the validity of these licences.

The latest regulations state that all documentation that expired between 26 March and 31 May will now be extended for 90 days from 1 June.

This extends to:

  • Learner’s licences;
  • Driving licences;
  • Temporary drivers licences;
  • Motor vehicle licence discs;
  • Temporary permits;
  • Roadworthy certificates;
  • Professional driver permits.
