..book your DL and LL quickly and efficiently via e-mail...
« on: December 05, 2008, 10:30:50 am »
These days you can book your DL and LL quickly and efficiently via e-mail and if it's an emergency you only pay about R150 extra to get your booking slotted in on a Saturday. I started e-mail requesting an emergency LL booking two weeks before getting a confirmation, resending every day and got my booking scheduled for the next Week.

That's plenty quick by any standards, so I'm very impressed even though I couldnā??t go due to my LL expiry. To book this way just send them an email requesting their template. If you donā??t get the template within 3 days then start requesting on a daily basis.

When you get the template complete it and send it back to the generic e-mail address, not to the person that responded to you. Then keep on sending the completed template to them on a daily basis until you get your booking. When you get your confirmation, read it carefully not to miss any information.

For emergency requests you need to state that itā??s an emergency in the subject and the nature of the emergency in the body of the e-mail (e.g. imminent LL expiry, DL needed for job, etc.). LL requests go to LL01@TSHWANE.GOV.ZA and DL requests go to DL01@TSHWANE.GOV.ZA.

Mods, please Sticky this post, since I think it will be of great value to WD members in future.

That's Great news Johann,

But it's for Tswane - anybody know if there is a similar facility available in CT or other locations?

Did a quick search for the Cape region, and it doesn't seem like it.

Although they do have the LL1 and DL1 forms available online.

I'm not sure about the rest of the regions, though I don't think so.

I got my drivers license renawal done this way in Centurion. You pay a little bit extra, but it is worth it.

Now if somebody can give me a list of acceptable reasons why it is an emergency ???

You don't want to break the law by driving without a valid license seems like emergency enough.

Was that above or below the table?

Above. On the emergency template they state in big red letters that it will cost you R148 extra.

Read my last reponse. We can only use the call center again. On the positive side, I tried making a booking last Wednesday and the only places they could help me out was either Temba or Langlaagte, I didn't want to go to either so tried again on Friday and got a confirmation for today at Randburg. Went through and spent the morning there, but I'm confirmed and writing my LL next Wednesday! Oh, and both the phone calls I made was completed in under 5 minutes!

Right. Got my motorcycle LL for the 3rd time yesterday. All in the space of 1Ā½ week from the booking, through confirmation to test. Not bad if you ask me, much more efficient than it used to be. That is IF you're willing to travel. Still.
