City Strives to Reduce Traffic Licensing Backlog

The introduction of the new E-Natis software has created many challenges at testing facilities in the City of Cape Town. The implementation of the system is managed by the National Department of Transport. The challenges relate mainly to the renewal and issue of card licenses. The backlog for conducting testing is at seven months at some testing centres while this has reduced to three months at other centres.


Since November 2005 a number of new staff have been appointed - 30 License Testing Officers were appointed and an additional seven licence testing officers are finalising their training and will be deployed by end of June 2007. Numerous Cashier/Clerk vacancies have been filled over the last 12 months and an additional 19 Clerical positions are in the process of being filled and will be finalised in May 2007.

The City, with the assistance of the Provincial Department of Transport, has recently opened two additional driver testing facilities at Joe Gqabi [in Philippi] and Khayelitsha. These facilities are receiving numerous applications from surrounding communities. It will take some time to establish the impact of the new facilities on the backlog for testing.

Two additional drivers' testing facilities located in Mitchells Plain and Ottery will be opening in the near future. This will assist in improving service delivery to the residents of the city.
