    The best part is I now have 2 licenses and the EU one only expires when I ll turn 50
    50?!? Weak bro. In UK, we trust our old folk to drive safely until 70

    I must actually convert my SA licence to UK licence in the next month or two.

    So you don't have to go renew it every 5 years?

    Not in UK, only when you hit 70. That's when your licence expires.

    Twice. First time I cocked up the three point turn due to nerves. Didn't reverse back far enough so there was no way I was making the turn coming forward again. Put a nun's ballhair of tyre on the kerb. FAIL!

    this is just is money making scheme by our goverment.
    i seen not point of renewing your license so often but we have to do it by law and judging by the ques last month when i renewed mine.....they make alot of money...like alot!

    The license centre runs minimum 22 days per month at minimum 200 people per day at R250 minimum per person/transaction .. that a total of per R1.1 million a month and R13.2 million a year

    all that money and they cant even employ more staff to make the process not so tedious.. i was there from 6am ..only left at 12.
    its like this everyday.
    i have the NEED , the need for SPEED

    No. It will expire the day I turn 50, then I believe I will be able to renew for 5 years twice and after 70 it becomes yearly

    But I m not sure if the system is still the same. I have a friend who had his license a few months later than me and they gave him 10 years I believe. He already has to renew it. Quite strange. I am not sure if they changed it or if it was a mistake on his license

    You better do it.

    You get to drive in a lot more places without issues and no issues on renewals.

    In Portugal they seem to have changed the system. See my previous post. So better do it before they do the same
