Government abandons plans to extend driver’s license validity

VAAL TRIANGLE - The validity period of driver's licenses in South Africa will remain unchanged at five years for the foreseeable future. This comes despite previous indications by former Transport minister Fikile Mbalula and current minister Sindisiwe Chikunga that the validity could be extended to eight or ten years. In an exclusive interview, Chikunga confirmed the proposal to extend the validity to eight years was not presented to Cabinet for approval as earlier stated.
