Still going strong after 30 years
Gene Louw Traffic College (GLTC) opened on 15 September 1989. For 30 years, the College has provided excellent training to thousands of traffic officers, municipal police officers, Examiner of Vehicles (EOV) officers, and Examiner of Driving Licences (EDL) officers. Trainees have come from the Western Cape, other provincial governments, local authorities, and vehicle testing stations all over South Africa.
GLTC is accredited as a training service provider by the Safety and Security Education and Training Authority (SASSETA) and the Quality Council for Trades and Occupations (QCTO).It is also registered by the Road Traffic Management Corporation (RTMC) as a facilitator of EOV and EDL training.
Provincial Minister of Transport and Public Works Bonginkosi Madikizela delivered the keynote address at GLTC's 30th anniversary. As part of the festivities, practising traffic law enforcement officials were awarded stars in recognition of service at the event, one star for every five years of law enforcement service.
Madikizela said the Department is in the process of constructing its own onsite indoor shooting range at the College, meaning officials will no longer have to go elsewhere for shooting training.
