Opening of Licensing Services

The City’s licensing services will NOT open on 1 June 2020.

Resumption of these services is subject to hygiene, disinfection control, social distancing and sanitising measures – all necessary to curb the spread of COVID-19. Before the offices can open for business, the Gauteng Provincial Government must first inspect and approve compliance of licensing facilities in relation to the COVID-19 regulations.


As per the Government Gazette No43339 of 20 May 2020:

  • All learner’s, driving and temporary driver’s licenses, as well as motor vehicle license discs, temporary permits, roadworthy certificates and professional driving permits that expire during the period 26 March – 31 May 2020 are deemed valid, and their validity period is further extended with 90 days from 1 June 2020.
  • Motor trade number licenses that expire during the same period are still valid and extended for a further grace period of six months, from the date of publication of these directions (20 May).

The public will be notified and updated on 5 June, in regard to the resumption of licensing services in Ekurhuleni.
