I went to renew drivers license.  When i put my thumbs on the scanner the prints didn't show. I was told by the lady operating the computer, the scanner, the camera, etc,  to go to the police station and get a certified copy of my id and bring it back to her.  Luckily i had a copy of my id with me, When i got back to her , she said i must go and pay R58.00.  I didn't realize this was for a temporary license. Again my luck i had passport photo with me. I paid the R58.00 and got a temporary license. How will i now get a license valid for 5 years? . They mumbled something that they will let know when I can pay R170.00 for the license as they have to decide how to handle this. They will notify me.  They  have my application with my address, email address  and cellphone no.  I received no documentation that i handed in an application for a drivers license, Anyone else had such an   experience?  I am in Nelspruit.

Had the same problem in Nov,as you get older your prints become "weaker' and the scanner has difficulty in picking it up.But at Meyerton ,a supervisor simply signed the internal  document and my license was issued without a fingerprint.

I dont think the Lady knows the procedure

In both cases a supervisor signed of the fingerprint documentation.

Had the same problem in Nylstroom in August last year. Visited then three times since then to try and solve the problem, but still without a license.

Ek wonder of dit sal help as ons vir sê 'n maand sover moontlik niks met ons hande doen nie.  Selle word mos gedurig vernuwe, en dalk het die vel in die tyd homself voldoende hernu dat ons weer vingerafdrukke het. 

Ek het ook met my lisensietoets in Februarie, 'n paar maal op hulle scanner moes druk voor my afdrukke voldoende gelees het.  Ek en my vrou sou ons lisensies moes afhaal net voor die inperking en toe ons daar kom, het die kantoor glo nie die nodige persoonlike veiligheids toerusting gehad nie toe is niemand toegelaat nie. Ons dog toe ons sal die volgende week gaan en toe tref die inperking die land.  Ons het nog steeds nie ons lisensies nie.

My wife went to collect her drivers 3 times, just to be told HO was not satisfied with finger prints. 4th time her drivers was issued with a blank finger print.

At the same time she went to get a new card id and a new passport. Home affairs rubbed a cream on fingers then wiped off the excess ..... and a usable finger print was achieved.

I recently renewed mine at the Traffic Dept in Milnerton, Cape Town and had the same problem. The scanner would not take my prints as they are worn away. They just renewed the license anyway and my new one is without any prints

I had the same problem in Malelane last year.

After ten attempts and different machines, they referred my application to Nelspruit where it was determined that my middle fingers prints will suffice and it will be registered as such.

I had to take out a temporary licence for a fee.

I was phoned a month later to say my prints have been approved and my application will be processed.

Two months later I went to their offices only to find out there is no progress on my application. After a search, my application was found, not processed, next to the telephone where the person phoned me from two months earlier.

I was issued a second temporary license without cost. Got my license 3 months later.

Total process took 8 months.

The Government most probably bought their equipment on a closed tender from a friend or family?
