Kindly note the following before reading this notice:
Renewal of Driving Licence Card for applicants who reside outside the borders of the Republic of South Africa:
Applicants should note that a Driving Licence Card cannot be renewed without the applicant applying in person as new fingerprints, photographs, signature and an eye test needs to be submitted.
Applicants planning to visit the Country are permitted to renew their licences, however, should they not be in the Country at the time of delivery, are entitled to nominate a relative or other person to collect the licence on their behalf. Such applicants must follow the procedure as referred to in Section 1 and ensure that:
It takes approximately six weeks for the Driving Licence Card to be delivered to the DLTC. Applicants can therefore apply for a Temporary Driving Licence and submit this together with their application for a renewal, to enable them to drive, until the card is delivered.
Applicants outside the borders of the RSA who's Driving Licence Cards have expired or were lost / stolen and who are not in a position to return to the RSA to have the licence renewed:
The RTMC is in a position to issue a confirmation letter should such applicant have a valid licence, this will be established on the National Traffic Information System. The letter will serve as proof that the applicant has a valid licence and this will enable them to convert to a foreign driving licence in the country of current residence.
Please note that the confirmation letter cannot be interpreted as a driving licence when produced to a law enforcement official.
The process for requesting confirmation letter is a follows:
Request the Road Traffic Management Corporation (RTMC) via email: firstname.lastname@example.org for a print out and Confirmation Letter for your driving licence. Your request must include:
The Road Traffic Management Corporation (RTMC) will upon request, investigate, print the copy of the licence required and a Letter of Confirmation of the licence. This letter reflects the date that the licence was first issued.
