Driving school owners call for online system to be scrapped – SABC News

Driving school owners say they will continue their protest action at driving license testing stations around Pretoria.

They say the centers will not work until their grievances are fully addressed.

Drivers are unhappy with the online booking system which aims to reduce long queues and eliminate corruption in the centres.

They say the technical issues are negatively affecting their customers and they want to go back to the manual system.

On Monday, Transport Minister Fikile Mbalula warned that unruly behavior would not be tolerated and that law enforcement officials would deal harshly with those who cause disruption.

Meanwhile, a number of Driver’s License Testing Centers (DLTCs) across Gauteng are still not operational due to an ongoing strike by driving school operators.

In Johannesburg, a few DLTCs have opened. These include Langlaagte, Randburg, Roodepoort and Sandton.

Driving school operators are unhappy with online booking systems introduced in 2018 aimed at reducing long queues and eliminating corruption at centres.
