Need to get your driver’s licence renewed in a hurry? Well, there’s one solution in the Western Cape that won’t even ask you to leave your car while getting the admin done. A drive-thru renewal centre is now up and running in the George Municipality.

We’ve seen it all: Drive-thru licence centre comes to Western Cape

The innovative solution to the licence backlog has received a warm reception, and needless to say, the DA are crowing about their new project. George is a blue town supported by coalition partners – and its mayoral team is hellbent on ensuring that the standards of good governance remain high.

Already this week, the municipality confirmed that 40 of its main traffic light systems were now protected from the threat of load shedding – even if cuts go ABOVE the Stage 6 mark. The installation of UPS units that power these robots have made the local road network ‘Eskom-proof’.

‘Quick, easy, innovative’: George Municipality praised for new scheme

The townspeople now have something else to shout about, too. This drive-thru licence centre has been converted from an already-existing building, and brand new offices have been installed to accommodate the service. It is the first operation of its kind in the Western Cape.

  • A statement from the party has praised the left-field thinking from the mayor’s office, praising the initiative as an ‘innovative’ one

“The DA-led coalition government in George is converting a municipal building into a new MVR satellite office. The drive-thru service will allow for quick and easy licence disk renewals – a first in the Western Cape. DA Mayors are constantly finding innovative ways to deliver better services.”
