English term or phrase: licensing department
Un uomo cerca di spiegare la dicitura errata del suo nome sulla patente. La storia è ambientata a Cape Town, Sudafrica.

It’s a mistake by the licensing department. It’s too much bother to change it.

La mia proposta:

E' un errore della motorizzazione. Troppo fastidio cambiarlo.

Cerco soluzioni migliori, considerando il fatto che siamo in Sudafrica e non so se a consegnare le patenti ai cittadini ci sia un'equivalente della nostra motorizzazione. Grazie!

Explanation:
Non mi sembra male usare 'motorizzazione', che è comprensibile ad un lettore italiano.
Per sapere come funziona in Sudafrica, basta chiedere a Wikipedia
(di qui la mia risposta)
"Driving licences are issued by authorised driving licence testing centres, which are run by the municipalities under the supervision of the provincial and national Departments of Transport."
