The Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse (OUTA) has called on Transport Minister Fikile Mbalula to extend the deadline for all expired driving licence cards.
On Monday, Mbalula warned that his department will not extend the grace period for motoring licences beyond 31st March.
The minister said those who continue to drive with expired licences past this date will face fines and possible prosecution.
The country currently has a backlog of more than 500,000 licences.
OUTA’s Executive Director Stefanie Fick says the minister must have in mind that there’s also the question of those motorists whose cards expired after 1 September last year, who have also been caught up in the current chaos of the backlog and received no help.
