Mobility MEC writes open letter to National Ministers over shortage of licensing forms

The Western Cape’s Mobility MEC, Ricardo Mackenzie, has expressed concern about the shortage of forms that are used for issuing of motor vehicle and driving licenses. The forms are issued by the National Government Printing Works.

According to Mackenzie, the shortage of the forms will have a negative impact on the economy.


The MEC has written an open letter to Home Affairs Minister, Aaron Motsoaledi, as well as Transport Minister, Sindiswe Chikunga, about the matter.

‘’If we run out of these forms, and cannot supply our municipalities, there will be no motor vehicle licence discs; no vehicle registration certificates; no temporary driving licences for those beset by an emergency; and applicants who pass the test will not get their learners’ licences. The impact on the quality of life of our citizens and our commitment to a lawful society will be significant,’’ read part of the Open Letter.
