Zimpost has announced that it has extended its working hours to clear a backlog of vehicle licence discs registration applications ahead of the June 1 deadline.
The Zimbabwe National Roads Administration (Zinara) has set June 1 as the deadline for motorists wishing to renew their licence discs for the next term.
Zimpost general manager Douglas Zimbango said the extension of the working hours was meant to, “curb disagreements between the authority and motorists over the deadline”.
Last week, Zinara said it would not extend the deadline for registration for new computerised licence discs despite an outcry from the public that the process was “cumbersome”.
The authority insisted that everyone should have the new vehicle licence by June 1.
The roads authority said failure to meet the deadline, motorists would incur a fine or penalty.
Zinara started issuing the new licence discs last Saturday.
The new disc has high security features to curb counterfeiting.
Zimbango said Zimpost would now operate from 7am to 6pm and would be open today (Africa Day).
