Renewing your drivers license is a must for a host of reasons

Published by under Driving Tips

osama drivers license 300x190 Renewing your drivers license is a must for a host of reasonsIf your driver’s license needs to be renewed you have a window period of grace before the expiry date kicks in, but once your license is out of date, you had better watch out as you could find yourself on the wrong end of the law plus your insurance could refuse to pay you out should you be involved in an accident.

Driving without a current driver’s license could be viewed as being an unlicensed driver, therefore your insurance house or service provider has every right to refute any claim if you are involved in an accident – both your own vehicle and the other party’s vehicle will not be protected and if there are injuries incurred to either party these are not going to be covered either. That is why it is so important to attend to your driver’s licence renewal before it becomes a problem.

Why you need to use Don’t-Q for your driver’s licence renewal:

  • Our professional representatives will ensure that all the necessary documentation in gathered for the renewal of your driver’s license.
  • If you don’t have an entire day or morning to take out from your busy schedule, then it might be an option to use us to stand in long queues on your behalf.
  • We will collect all the necessary documentation for you, process the documentation at the Licensing Department and deliver all the necessary.

This is what will be required from you in order for us to renew your driver’s license:

  • You will need four black and white photos with a white background – and you are not permitted to smile in the photos.
  • Your current driver’s license which has not passed the expiry date, or your passport or your green bar-coded SA ID book.

But you need to have your fingerprints taken and your eyes tested – how can we assist? This is easy as Don’t-Q will collect you and take you to the Licensing Department – the best part of all is that there will be no queuing because we will organise a rep who will be waiting in the front of the queue for you; life does not get much better than this.

Once the process is completed you will be issued with a temporary license which is valid for no less than six months and after six weeks you will receive your renewed license.

Your driver’s license renewal is important – ensure yours is up to date at all times in order to stay above the law. Our Don’t-Q representative will assist every step of the way to ensure yours is an easy and uncomplicated process.

driverless cars 300x200 Driver less cars   will we need licensesWith driver-less cars starting to take shape and form in the USA – http://www.cittoncars.co.za/driver-less-car/ it’s not long before it hits South Africa.

Google received the first license to test driverless cars in Nevada, paving the way for a revamped driving culture.

The cars pilot themselves using lasers installed in the roof and grill, and passengers often do not have to touch the brakes or steering wheel to reach their destination.

Las Vegas residents may see the test batch out on the streets immediately, identified by a red license plate with an infinity symbol on it. Don’t expect empty vehicles picking up their passengers, because two people must be present in the cars at all times. Continue Reading »

Free credit check – is it really free?

Published by under News for Drivers

 Free credit check – is it really free?Whether you are seeking financial advice or looking to elevate your credit status, getting a credit report is your starting point.  But does it cost.  Well sure someone will pay for the credit report but you can get it free from a service provider.  They usually will pay for it, provide it free to you then offer you a service that you will need to pay for it, however, this is usually for your benefit.

There is no doubt that a credit report is the source of your credit health, which affects your financial wellbeing, today and tomorrow. If you are a credit-active consumer, getting your free credit report means that you can take control of your credit reputation by owning your credit report and future. Your free credit report remains your passport to credit, so manage it and protect it well.

Your free credit report will tell you, amongst other things, who has been checking up on you.  What accounts you have and how they are being managed.  Whether there are trace alerts, adverse or judgements against you and most important of all – what your credit profile and score looks like.

You can get these in South Africa, where the information is shared between the major credit bureaus; Transunion (The old ITC), Experien and XDS (the new kid on the block).  The data remains basically the same but it seems like Transunion own at least 70% of the credit data.

You can improve your credit view with some easy steps and these include paying your accounts on time, checking and updating your information with the credit bureaus regularly and keeping your credit clean.

Most importantly, is start today? If you have more debt than you can manage a debt counsellor can help you lower your instalments or debt and even cancel a credit agreement if there was reckless lending by a creditor. Debt Counselling can lower your interest rates or extend the term of your loan while still maintaining your standard of living.

If you have a judgement and need legal advice remember – anyone can rescind a judgment and have their credit reputation repaired with the right professional legal help. A lawyer can give you sound professional advice on how to this, but you will need a lawyer to apply for the rescission of judgment, or administration order.

With this information at your fingertips the decision is simple:

Are you credit worthy or not – and that is why you need to start at the beginning.

Apply For Your ID Online – Better Still Pay Someone To Assist

Published by under Licensing Offices

If you are thinking of standing in a lengthy queue to apply for your ID, it might be a far better option to apply for your ID online; alternatively pay for someone to do this on your behalf. But it does not stop there – when time is far more valuable than money it might be a good idea to pay someone to do a whole host of different tasks on your behalf.

 

Delegate the boring bits – there are a growing number of life management companies in SA who will do anything from paperwork to picking up your dry-cleaning. Choose a lifestyle company management service who will come in and de-clutter your life, perform errands on your behalf, buy flowers and gifts (although these can quite easily be done online), organise your travel and your entertainment arrangements, do your housework and even house sit for you.

 

For R150 an hour you can hire a company who will pay your bills and fines, organise quotes, buy and wrap presents, organise events and a lot more. Although many of these tasks can be done online, it is often easier to just pay someone to do these for you.

 

For a more business-like approach get yourself a virtual PA who can make all your arrangements on your behalf as well as complete secretarial and reception tasks without taking up any space in your real office. Prices will be negotiated according to your needs. Did you know there are companies that will also do your grocery shopping, stand in queues and pick up your fave DVD?

 

If you find that time is more important than money apply for you ID online, do your banking online, buy gifts and flowers online or simply hire someone else to stand in queues, rent a shuttle to take you to the airport or rent a handyman to do those chores you somehow never seem to get around to doing.

The first step is that of South African travelers need to be in possession of a passport for travel purposes outside of the countrys borders. Travel documents are issued by the Department of Home Affairs. Applicants should note that In terms of section 26(B) of the South African Citizenship Act, 1995, it is a punishable offence for a South African citizen of 18 years and older to leave or enter South Africa on a foreign passport. However, as a holder of that Passport be in the know that it is expected of you as a your tourist passport be valid for 10 years and must Passports must be valid for at least 30 days after the intended date of departure. Passports should also have at least two blank pages for entry stamps. At the very same time, you are expected to contact one of your nearest home affairs office to validate it again which what is expected out of you if your South African passport expires you have to complete a new application to get a new passport. 


To apply for the passport, you must submit the following documents:   a duly completed passport application Form DHA-73, our original identity document and a copy, or a birth certificate and copy thereof if under 16 or if above 18 years to submit proof of parental consent for issuing of the passport. Furthermore, even if you are applying for the Foreign Passport you would need to submit the completed determination of citizenship Form DHA-529 when applying from abroad. Also you will requested to present any existing valid tourist passport or if you have lost your passport or it has been stolen and you are applying for a new passport,  you must provide a loss of passport report (DHA-335 ) and confirmation that you reported the loss to the police. The other rest like the 2 recent passport sized photographs of you would be needed together with the administration issuing fee of it.
