Your help and advice would be most welcome.
Yes it is possible. A foreign national can apply for a learner’s licence (LL) and driving licence (DL) using a foreign identification document or a Traffic Register Number (TRN).
A TRN is issued to a foreign national who is not in possession of an identification document. The person must submit the valid passport or any other travel document as recognized by the Minister of Home Affairs as valid for identification purposes. Based on this a TRN is issued on a register number certificate (form RNC).
The TRN is issued free of charge on the day the person applies for a LL. It must then be presented for all subsequent transactions related to licences or motor vehicle registration and licensing. The certificate should be safeguarded as it is a form of identification for motor vehicle and licensing related activities. A fee is charged for the replacement of a lost, stolen or defaced form.
