Drivers License Check

With the Drivers License Check, you can check the status of their application before going to the testing centre to collect it. This can be done by SMS or online. For a driver’s licence query, applicants can SMS their ID number to 33214.

If you’ve recently applied for a new driving licence card, go back in six to eight weeks and check if your card is already there. Several driving licence centre centres don’t send collection notifications, so it’s best to be proactive.

If you have been waiting for notification and have not yet received any, the RTMC says you can check your licence card status before you head out for collection.

SMS your ID number to 33214 and expect one of the following outcomes:

1. Application Received – meaning the application has been received 
 from the DLTC and not yet processed.
2. Production Queue – meaning the processing and manufacturing of your 
 card is in process.

3. Produced and Ready for Collection – meaning that, the card has been 
 produced and the card will be ready for collection in 14 days.

4. Problem Card – There is a problem with the production of your card,
 and you must return to the testing centre.
