Traffic Department closed over long weekends

29 March 2019

The Kouga Traffic Department’s offices at both Humansdorp and Hankey will be closed over the long weekends in April and June.

Kouga Community Services Portfolio Councillor Daniel Benson said the Traffic offices were usually open on Saturdays so as to accommodate the high demand for licensing services.

“There are, however, three long weekends coming up and the offices will be closed for their duration, including the Saturdays,” he said.

The relevant dates are Easter Saturday, 20 April, Freedom Day, 27 April, and 15 June, ahead of Youth Day.

He further encouraged people to make us of the telephone booking system to avoid having to wait in long queues to make learner’s and driver’s licence appointments.

“Your telephonic booking does not secure a testing date. It secures a slot for you to visit the Traffic Department to make a date for the relevant tests,” he explained.

“Unfortunately, testing dates cannot be booked telephonically, as you also have to complete an eye test and your fingerprints have to captured on the Live Enrolment Unit. Only then can a testing date be confirmed through the eNatis system.”     

He reminded residents that learner’s licence tests and vehicle licence renewals can also be done at the Hankey satellite station at the municipal offices in the town.

To book a slot to visit the Traffic Department so that you can reserve a testing date phone 042 200 2200 and follow the automated voice prompts.
