"Members of the public are also urged not to panic as there is the 90-days grace window period approved by the Minister of Transport for the renewal of licences that have expired. 

"The department, as well as the affected municipalities, will update the public once operations resume at each branch," says KZN Transport Department, spokesperson, Gugu Sisilana. 

Sisilana adds: "Those whose learner and driving license tests have been impacted by the closures will be contacted to arrange alternative test dates at no additional cost.

"Members of the public and car dealerships are urged to use other DLTCs and Registering Authorities that have not been affected. This is in addition to more than 39 post offices and municipalities operating as registering authorities."
