Challenges continue at testing, licensing offices – RLM

Posted in Latest News

RUSTENBURG HERALD – RUSTENBURG – It seems that the issues which have been reported on in the Rustenburg Herald pertaining to the testing and licensing offices experiencing difficulties in Rustenburg continue to plague residents. According to Rustenburg Local Municipality (RLM) spokesperson, Thapelo Matebesi, the issues revolve around contractual disputes between the two national systems used not only in Rustenburg but nationwide – namely the Tazima and Road Traffic Management Corporation (RTMC). “Currently all capturing units including eye test machines are offline. This means there are no services rendered at the driving licenses testing station and renewal thereof. It is only the application and issuing of learner’s licenses that are being done,” states Matebesi. The municipality has embarked on talks with both provincial and national Departments of Transport in order to rectify the situation. Technicians are currently working to restore the testing machines and other systems. “We sincerely apologise for the inconvenience caused and are positive that the situation will be resolved soon,” concludes Matebesi.
