 The Post Office has advised motorist to avoid the following dates:

  • 4th – 7th of every month, as branches deal with SASSA payments
  • 21st of every month. Car owners receive 21 days grace after expiry of their car licence, and Post Offices find that customers flock to the branches on this day to renew at the last minute.
