Keep the receipt as proof of payment and as confirmation of the test date and time.

On the date of the test, you must be at the DLTC at the specified testing time. Your receipt and learner’s license will be verified before you proceed to the test.

If you pass the driving test, you must pay the issuing fee of R140.00 to receive a temporary driving licence, which you will use while you wait for the ordered driving license card which will take up to 8 weeks. You will be notified when you’re driving license card is ready for collection. You must collect your driving license at the DLTC where you made your application.
