The Department of Transport has today reassured members of the public that the production of driving licence cards will not be affected by the routine maintenance of the card production machine.
The department has therefore encouraged members of the public to continue applying for their driving licence card as normal.
The routine maintenance started on 05 April 2023 to the 19th of April 2023. Thereafter the technical team encountered a technical breakdown which requires a replacement of a critical part from the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM).
It is anticipated that the resumption of card production shall commence within the next 2-3 weeks.
