The primary driver's permit machine has been repaired and is now producing permit cards.
Twitter, Fikile Mbalula
The main machine in South Africa that prints driver's license cards, which had been broken since November 7 last year, has now been repaired and is operational again.
The 20-year-old equipment broke down in November, generating a backlog of permit recharge requests.
On Wednesday, transport service Fikile Mbalula claimed that the equipment had been repaired and was now operational.
"SA, have a wonderful morning. I recently paid a visit to the DLCA (Driver's License Card Agency) workers and spent the evening with them. The authorization card machine has been repaired and is now operational. The team is continually working to ensure that your licenses are created and delivered on time "Mbalula sent out a tweet on Wednesday morning.
He also included the following video:
Those whose licenses were revoked due to the pandemic lockdown and whose cards expired after March 26, 2020, have been granted an extension by Mbalula and have until the end of March this year to renew them.
The buildup is estimated to affect over 1,000,000 people, according to common society organisations.
