Free eye testing to speed up driving licence applications

By Celeste Ganga

The City of Cape Town traffic services has moved swiftly to implement an initiative by the National Department of Transport that will provide free eye testing to applicants for driving licences.

A statement released by the City says that after having an eye test at any optometrist, the applicant (provided that their vision meets the requirements of the National Road Traffic Act) will have his/her results noted on an official document-known as the “Purple Form” which is then handed in along with the licence application form, at the driving licence testing centre.

Driving licences can now be renewed at the new Ottery Driving Licence Testing Centre. It’s situated on the corner of Old Ottery and New Strandfontein Roads.

The Centre is open Monday to Friday from 08:00 to 15:30 and on Saturdays from 08:00 to 11:00. For more information contact the Centre on 021 710 8303
