CLARITY REGARDING LICENCE RENEWALS

It has come to the attention of the Department of Transport that there exists some uncertainty surrounding various licence renewals and expiry deadlines.

According to the directions previously published by the Department of Transport the following deadlines were set out:

• Motor vehicle licence discs, temporary permits and roadworthy certificates that expired during the period that commenced from 26 March 2020 up to and including 31 May 2020 were deemed to be valid for a period ending on 31 August 2020.

• All learner’s licences, driving licence cards, temporary driving licences and professional driving permits that expired during the period that commenced from 26 March 2020 up to and including 31 August 2020 are deemed to be valid for a period ending on 31 January 2021.

• Motor trade number licences that expired during the period that commenced from 26 March 2020 up to and including 31 May 2020 are deemed to be valid for a period ending on 30 November 2020.

It must be taken into account that no further extensions will be granted and those who fail to renew on time will have to pay applicable penalties or face the necessary repercussions for late renewal.
