Tomorrow, Thursday, 13 October 2022, the Democratic Alliance (DA) Gauteng Shadow MEC for Roads and Transport, Fred Nel MPL, the DA Gauteng Spokesperson for Roads and Transport, Evert Du Plessis MPL, will be conducting an oversight inspection at the Xavier Junction Driver’s Licence and Testing Centre (DLTC), Mondeor, Johannesburg.
Earlier this year, two people were arrested at this DLTC for selling driver’s licences. During our oversight inspection, we will be assessing what measures have been put in place to deal with bribery and corruption.
In addition, we will also engage with the management of the DLTC to find out what impact load-shedding has had on their operations and, if they have any backup generators in place as well as how they are dealing with driver’s licence backlog.
Our residents deserve to have DLTCs that are free from corruption and render adequate services. This will ensure that our only drivers who have fulfilled all the requirements of obtaining a licence are issued with a driver’s licence, and it will reduce the number of fatalities on the roads.
The media is invited and there will be an opportunity for interviews and photographs.
Details of the oversight visit are as follows:
Date: 13 October 2022
Address: 5 Rente St, Ormonde, Johannesburg South, 2091
