Every now and then, we need to sort out a bit of admin. New drivers licenses, tax returns, filing an accident report, paying your water and electricity bills, the works. Luckily, the suburb of Randburg offers all of these municipal services all within close proximity of each other. Most of which can be found near the Randburg CBD.
In the centre of Randburg CBD, you'll find the South African Revenue Service building. They are the country's tax collecting authority and are responsible for administering the South African tax system and customs service. They play an integral role in the taxation in nation-building and deem the tax system as an asset that belongs to the nation. They are guided by the code of conduct and the principles of SARS values of accountability, fairness, honesty, integrity, respect, transparency and trust. This building is also nearby the municipal services provided by the Licensing Department.
Need to obtain or renew your drivers license? Then be sure to visit the Randburg Licensing Department also located within the Randburg CBD. Please note that you need to renew your driver's license at the licensing department four weeks before your original license is due to expire. If you renew your license after the expiry date, you will need to apply for a temporary driving licence at an additional cost. All Gauteng licensing appointment bookings must be done online. Don't forget to take the following documentation along with you to your booked appointment: your ID, letter of notice of your appointment, four black and white ID photos, proof of residential address, and your application fee. You will undergo eye testing and your fingerprints will be taken during your appointment.
There are four SAPS stations in Randburg, namely the Parkview Police Station, Honeydew Police Station, the Randburg Police Station, and Linden Police Station.

For all of your personal documentation ranging from ID booklets/cards and birth certificates to passports, visas and more, you'll need to visit the Department of Home Affairs on Malibongwe Drive in Randburg.
