Dear friends and other interesting creatures,
Some helpful hits on renewing your Drivers Licence card.
Step 1: Go online with optimistic enthusiasm: https://online.natis.gov.za/
Step 2: Click on DL Card Renewal.
Step 3: Complete your details and confirm you are not a robot.
Step 4: Eventually you get to a screen with a drop down list once you selected your Province. It will show you the slots available to book, and where.
Surprise! There may be no slots available.
Step 5: Log on daily and go through this process until you finally find an available slot. Remain optimistic.
Step 6: Take a photocopy of your ID and previous lisence on the same page with to your appointment. Also a black pen. Some lisence departments only take cash. Same take cards. To be safe, I would take both.
You will need photos if you are also applying for a temporary lisence.
Step 7: Arrive for your appointment an hour before. Fill in the green form and get in line. The time you booked will be called and move to a new spot.
Step 8: Next is an eye test. There has been an upgrade since I’ve last been. The eye test administrator also does your finger prints and takes a picture.
Step 9: Move over to the Cashier line and pay R228.
Step 10: Apparently it takes six weeks to when it can be collected. I’ll let you know! 🙂
I wish us all patience,
