The issuing of new driver’s licences and the renewal of licenses is on hold at the Uitenhage and Korsten traffic and licensing centres.

A problem with the driving licence card account, based in Pretoria, are resulting in the live enrolment unit machines not operating at this stage.

This also affects the bookings of learner’s licence tests.

Warren Prins, the city’s director of traffic and licensing, said: “Unfortunately we do not have a time-frame when these machines, used to renew and issue newly acquired driver’s licence and book learner’s licences among others, will be back online.

“These machines log on to national software systems to transact.

“We would like to advise prospective clients to postpone a trip to our facilities until further notice,” Prins said.
