No more walk-ins will be accepted at Gauteng licensing centres from November 1.
With close to 50 percent of driving licence application bookings being made online, Gauteng will cease walk-in bookings at all its driving licence testing centres (DLTCs) with effect from November 1, the Road Traffic Management Corporation (RTMC) said on Sunday.
Out of 108,554 people who made applications last week, 48,205 used the online booking system instead of waiting in long queues at the driving licence testing centres, RTMC spokesman Simon Zwane said in a statement.
This encouraging growth had been achieved within a short period of seven weeks since the launch of the service on August 30. The new innovative system had reduced long queues and saved travelling time and money for thousands of applicants, he said.
