    Dear Sir/Madam,

    I’d paid 130,000/ to renew my driving permit for a 3 years on 5/7/19.
    I’d been in & out of the country and had overlooked going to the face technology to pay their fees and collect it.
    Unfortunately, when I did go to collect it, I was told the time to collect it had lapsed & now, have to pay for new permit & restart the whole process of applying for the licence.
    Now, I have the proof of the payment made to the bank for 130,000/
    Am I to pay that again? Plus, what is the way forward?
    Would appreciate your guidance.
