What you need when renewing your South African drivers license
Last week I found out that my license expired in November so it was almost 3 months after the expiration date.
So I quickly went to the licensing station or department at Marlboro Gardens to renew my license.
There was no clear instructions or signs telling me what to do. So you sort of need to figure stuff out yourself as there isn’t really anyone to help you.
The documents and other stuff you need before you go:
- Original ID Document.
- Take a copy of your ID with you on an A4 paper. You need this and they don’t have a copier there.
- Take a pen with you. They don’t have pens there.
- Take 4 black and white ID photos with you. You need to get them before you go at any Kodak store or other photography shops. Sometimes they’ve got some dodgy guys sitting outside of the licensing station. They will only use 2 photos but take 4 just in case.
- Take your glasses with you for the eye test.
What sections to fill in on the form
Fill in section A, B and C.
What does it cost?
For a code B license it costs R230. You will also need to get a temporary license which costs R70. So take about R400 with you just to be safe.
