The Road Transport and Safety Agency (RTSA) has disclosed that the production of Drivers Licence Cards has normalised.


RTSA Acting Senior Public Relations Manager Fredrick Mubanga said the agency has received an increase in the number of applicants applying for drivers licences countrywide due to the increased number of motors vehicles in the country.


Mr Mubanga said the simulated backlog that was experienced in the recent past has since been addressed.


He said in a statement released to ZANIS in Lusaka today that the agency has so far printed and dispatched over 28, 000 cards to all RTSA stations since it resumed the normal operations of card printing on August 10, 2014.


Mr Mubanga has advised members of the public who had applied for driver’s licences in the past few months to check for the licences in various RTSA stations.


He said RTSA is currently working on modalities to enhance the card printing facility so as to ensure that drivers licenses applied for are issued within the stipulated period of 30 days after application.


He further stressed that a temporal license is a valid license and does not need extensions.


Mr Mubanga however said in cases where it is inevitable, extension would be done by way of printing duplicate temporal drivers licence at no fee.
