You will soon be able to have your driving licence card delivered to your door

Transport minister Fikile Mbalula says his department is working on a number of updates for driver licences in South Africa, including the option to have a licence delivered directly to your home or office.

In a media briefing on Wednesday (12 January), Mbalula said the Department of Transport also plans to begin accepting online payments for several services, including:

  • Motor vehicle licence renewals;
  • Driving licence card renewals;
  • Learner’s licence tests;
  • Driving licence tests.

Mbalula also confirmed that the government is considering a new smart driver licence card for the country, which will be presented to president Cyril Ramaphosa’s cabinet shortly.

This will help address a growing backlog as approximately half a million South African motorists are stuck with expired driving licence cards because the twenty-year-old machine that prints them all has been out of order since November.
