From Monday, Mitchells Plain residents will finally gain access to a drivers licensing testing centre, once the Eastridge centre is opened.
While the city faces major backlogs with drivers licence bookings, it is hoped that with the opening of the centre, some relief will be provided. Bookings will start on 09 February 2009. The testing facility is located near the bus terminus and railway station, which is accessible to most Mitchells Plain residents.
Traffic spokesperson Inez Lackay says this is a positive step for the department.
“It will definitely alleviate a lot of the backlog. Also it is accessible to a large number of people,” she said.
