awesome. You guys a lucky. In GP we have to do a road test. So in GP you might as well get a new licence afresh.

However, I am curious to know, did they give you back your foreign license or they retain it?

HI Guys

Is it a must or required by law for me to convert my zim licence and if so how much time do they give to make the conversion after getting SA ID? If not required by law what are the benefits of converting to SA one?

Hi There

you have 12 months to convert otherwise your licence is invalid afterwards eg should you have an accident the insurers won't cover things like that.

I suggest you convert and just get it out of the way its a little hard in GP but if you are in other provinces its much easier!
