Delays at Nelson Mandela Bay driving licence testing centres


The Driving Licence Division of the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality is currently experiencing delays in assisting the public mainly as a result of electronic equipment that is currently defective, the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality said on Tuesday afternoon.

"While the National Department of Transport is responsible for the replacement and repair of this equipment, the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality is bringing three Live Scanning Units in from the Training College to ease these delays while new equipment is procured," the municipality said.

"The Licensing Division is in constant contact with the Provincial department of Transport to request assistance.

"The above aggravates the current problems of staff shortages and is directly the cause of abnormally long queues and waiting time at our Centres.

"Thank you for your patience while we resolve this crisis."
