Traffic offices in Kleinmond and Gansbaai will be open for certain transactions such as the registration and licensing of a motor vehicle, as well as annual renewals, while the Hermanus office is closed. The traffic offices in Kleinmond and Gansbaai will be open Monday to Friday from 08:00 – 15:30, with a lunch break between 13:00 – 13:45.
Residents have a 90-day grace period from 1 June for documents that expired during the lockdown period from 26 March to 31 May. These include driver’s licences, learner’s licences, temporary permits, professional driving permits (PDPs), roadworthy certificates, and the registering and licensing of a motor vehicle, as well as annual renewals.
Remember to take your identity document with you when renewing your motor vehicle licence. If someone else renews your licence on your behalf, you need to ensure that they have a letter of authorisation to do so; a certified copy of your ID and their own ID; the licence disc or the vehicle’s registration papers; and the appropriate fees. In the case of a married couple, a spouse doing the transaction can bring their marriage certificate and this will be sufficient proof of permission.
