That's after a spate of break-ins resulted in slower service delivery. 

Break-ins and theft have been reported at the Watloo, Akasia and Centurion license departments.


MMC for Community Safety, Alderman Kissoonduth says assisting motorists are being prioritised. 


"In terms of the law, a driving license card holder may renew their license at any licensing centre in the country and any other convenient testing centre may be approached in this regard. This implies that motorists need not get fines for expired licenses as they can renew these at any nearest station or post office," says Kissoonduth.

Kissoonduth says a limited driving license card renewal service has been introduced at the Centurion Licensing Centre from Thursday, 13 July 2017.


He says applicants in possession of an Optometrist Eye Test Certificate will be assisted. 


"However, due to the break-in, this service is unfortunately limited to approximately 100 clients per day," says Kissoonduth.


The MMC says applicants who visit the Akasia and the Bronkhorstspruit Licensing Centres are encouraged to bring along an Optometrist Certificate to assist the renewal procedure. 


Kissoonduth says Tshwane residents are not restricted to Tshwane centres.
