South Africa: Temporary Closure of Testing Centres

The Gauteng Department of Roads and Transport will be rolling out Live Enrolment Units (LEUs) at all Provincial Driver License Testing Centres from Monday until Friday.

"The week-long installation process will result in partial closure of the centres as the staff will also be undergoing training," the provincial department said.

The centres will be closed for bookings, however, scheduled tests, renewal of licence discs and card collection services will continue to be rendered.

The LEUs replace Live Capturing Units (LCUs) which are used for eye testing and Computer Learner License Testing Units for learner testing.

"This is part of the province's modernising agenda and is envisioned to improve efficiency, reduce waiting periods as well as minimise the possibility of fraud and corruption.

Furthermore, the new technology is expected to improve service delivery whilst also promoting honesty and good governance," the department said.

It also presents a compulsory programme for continuous skills assessment, learning and improvement.

Installation and staff training schedule is as follows:

21 August 2017 - Xavier DLTC (Ormonde)

22 to 23 August 2017 - Kliptown and Maponya Mall DLTCs (Soweto)

23 to 24 August 2017 - Mabopane DLTC (Tshwane)
