The Seychelles Licensing Authority (SLA) is advising the general public on Praslin and La Digue that its offices on both islands will move into new locations as from tomorrow, March 1, 2024 while operations will start as from March 4, 2024. 

It was the public relations officer at SLA, Shannon Françoise, who made the advisory call during a press briefing on Tuesday at the authority’s headquarters, Orion Mall Building, Victoria.

The La Digue branch, which was occupying an office at the back of the La Digue community centre, will now be located in an office on the first floor of the Pension Fund Building in La Passe, located adjacent to the community centre.

The Praslin office, which was located in the JW Building on Eve Island, will be based on the ground floor of the former STC Supermarket, in the Pension Fund Complex at Grand Anse Praslin.

Ms Françoise noted that the office in the Pension Fund Complex is being shared with the Seychelles Revenue Commission (SRC).

According to Ms Françoise, the reason for the move was to provide conducive space for clients and staff, which was lacking in the two previous locations.

She said that while services that were offered in both branches related to business and driving will remain the same, new in addition will be the possibility for drivers on both islands to have their driving license cards printed at the Praslin branch only, without having to do it on Mahé.

“The aim is to offer additional and better quality service to clients. All of our services remain the same and we would like to encourage members of the public on Mahé, Praslin and La Digue to use our online services by visiting to access the different platforms. Given the world is digital nowadays, we want maximum people to make use of our digital platforms,” said Ms Françoise.

Meanwhile SLA has announced the re-opening of the Providence branch as from March 4, 2024. The branch was damaged during the December 7 explosion.

SLA will also be closing all of its offices across the country on March 8, 2024, including the Vehicle Testing Station at Roche Caiman, for staff training.

Ms Françoise said to compensate for the closure, all branches will be open as from Monday March 4 to Thursday March 7, 2024 from 8am to 5pm instead of closing at the usual 2.45pm.
