For Immediate Release
Thursday, 11 June 2020
KwaDukuza Municipality regrets to inform residents and stakeholders that the Motor and Driver Licensing Centres will remain closed.
The KwaDukuza Municipality has taken a decision to close the Motor and Driver Licensing Centres further after becoming aware, this evening, that one of its employees in this section has been tested positive for COVID-19. The employee referred-to came into contact with the fellow colleagues as employees returned to work stations on Monday, 08 June 2020, to prepare for tomorrow's opening.
This, therefore, takes us back in terms of our original plan as we now have to allow all employees of the section to be retested for COVID-19 and to self-isolate for the required 14 days.
Our residents are assured not to panic as there is a 90-day grace window period approved currently in, that was announced by the Minister of Transport for the renewal of licences that have expired. Those who able are urged to use other licensing offices/registering authorities and post offices.
We wish to, again, ask for corporation and calm from our community. We will be doing everything possible to ensure speedy retesting and return of results so that we can open up as soon as possible.
We appeal to our residents to be reminded that COVID-19 pandemic is still raging out there and we appeal that our community remains observant and safe.
Further information on the opening of the Motor and Driver Licensing Centres will be issued once the Health and Transport departments grant us their approval.
