    Default Renewing Drivers License

    What procedure should I follow to get my Drivers License renewed? I live in Pretoria (Menlyn Area). I'm new to PTA, so I have no clue as to where to go

    Thanks...

    mmm, that sounds like an idea. Does it cost anything? And what documents do I need to take with me?

    Procedure is quite simple, take 4 photos with you, and fill out the form. You have to do the whole finger print and eye test thing again. Submit your forms and get your temporary license.

    I did at Midrand recently and it took me less than 45 minutes. I would suggest getting up bright and early to beat the lines.

    Can you get the eye test done before hand at a specsavers or optician?

    Nope, there is a specific patern that they use, and they "quiz" you on it. It is just saying where the spotted block is.

    If you have bi-focals, you might have a hassle with the eye testing...I had to physicly "move" my glasses up and down to actually see the "E"...You got a little lever that you have to shift in the direction of the 3 "stripes" of the letter E

    mmm, can they take my foto there, or should I take some with me? If so, where can I get these photos from?

    Did you have to provide them with proof that you did this test?

    Our licences expired - we went to an optician for an eye test, and got an certificate with the results on.

    When the eye test at the test centre was due, the examiners simply transferred the optician's test results from the certificate to our paperwork.

    So it is possible.
