Driving licence testing centre registration


Should you wish to open a driving licence testing centre, the centre needs to be registered with the Minister of Transport.

Once an application has been received to open a driving testing centre, the inspectorate of driving licence testing centres will evaluate the testing centre concerned and recommend an appropriate grading. The inspectorate will also conduct at least one inspection per year to monitor the standards applied at the centre and advise any driving licence testing centre on any improvement and maintenance of testing facilities and procedures that are necessary.

Currently, only Municipalities with traffic departments are permitted to operate driving licence testing centres.

To apply to register a driving licence testing centre you need to complete form DTC. A management representative and the examiners for driving licences must be identified on the form.

The application must be accompanied by identification of:

  • the driving licence testing centre concerned,
  • the management representative, and
  • the examiners for driving licences.

Note: Motorists must verify all personal and address particulars with any motor vehicle or driving licence transaction.  These documents can be used as proof.
