Cape Town - Many motorists are under the impression that obtaining a driver’s licence is a once-off bit of admin but it is in fact a lifetime commitment.

The fact is, for motorists to continue driving legally on our roads, driver’s licences must be renewed every five years.

"Not to mention, insurance companies won’t cover motorists driving with an expired licence."
