Motorists in Lephalale will heave a sigh of relief following the announcement by the local municipality that it will restore services at the licensing department on Tuesday.
Municipality suspended the services in the wake of a fire which raged through the Civic Centre on February 4, 20202, damaging three license department offices.
Lephalale Municipality spokesperson, Conscious Chiloane said in a statement on Monday the licensing department has been renovated and it will provide services from Tuesday.
“We would like to thank the community for their patience while the office was being renovated,” said Chiloane
People applying for leaners and renewing driver’s licences, including permits, were the most affected.
Limpopo Police Spokesperson, Brigadier Motlafela Mojapelo said the firefighters extinguished the fire which had already wrecked three license department offices, causing damage estimated at over R100 000.
“The cause of fire has not yet known, but the ongoing police investigations will tell,” said Mojapelo.
