CVR to Open Offices in Bulawayo by June

The Central Vehicle Registry (CVR) is reducing congestion at its Harare office by spreading its driver’s licence operations to Bulawayo.

Transport and Infrastructural Development Minister Felix Mhona announced this after noticing long queues at the Zimbabwe International Trade Fair (ZITF), where people were waiting for the new standard plastic driver’s licences.

The Ministry of Transport and Infrastructural Development gave Bulawayo drivers a chance to collect their licence discs at its stand at the recently-ended Zimbabwe International Trade Fair (ZITF).

This applied to learners who took driving tests at the VID depots from April 23 to 27.

Since June 2023, motorists could get the new driver’s licence discs within 7–10 days after passing the tests.

The disc costs US$5, or the equivalent, at the official exchange rate on the day of payment.

Expanding services to Bulawayo makes processes simpler and more accessible.

Minister Mhona told The Herald:

Travelling long distances to acquire licences and other documents will be a thing of the past.

Minister Mhona noted that the long queues at the ZITF stand showed that people are embracing the new SADC-compliant driver’s licences.

The new standard plastic driver’s licences, connected to a comprehensive database, replace the old metal ones.

This update enhances security and data management and meets international standards, especially those set by the Southern African Development Community (SADC).

The Minister added:

One of the advantages of the new plastic licences is that they will be printed instantly and have security features that will make them difficult to forge, as well as being scannable so checks can immediately confirm the authenticity and reveal any legal issues.”
