National network problems hampering services at traffic departments

Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality Member of the Mayoral Committee for Safety and Security, John Best, on Tuesday said that he is regularly in contact with senior representatives from the national Department of Transport to resolve network problems affecting services at both the Korsten and Uitenhage Traffic and Licencing Centres.

“We have the new machines and the appropriate manpower in place but have been hamstrung since yesterday at our centres due to our machines not being able to connect with the network of the national Department of Transport.

“l will continue my engagement with the department until the network connection is restored. I will also ensure that our consumers are notified of any new developments,” MMC Best said.

Services affected are applications for learner’s and driver’s licences, professional driving permits and renewals.
