The Road Traffic Management Corporation (RTMC), a corporation of the Department of Transport, is in a position to issue a confirmation letter should such an applicant have a valid licence. This is established by verifying the applicant’s South African identification number on the National Traffic Information System. The letter will serve as proof that the applicant has a valid licence and this will enable them to convert to a foreign driving licence in the country of current residence.
That the confirmation letter cannot be interpreted as a driving licence when produced to a law enforcement official. The United Kingdom will not convert your driving licence to a UK one if your driving licence card has expired.

RTMC Conversion of Drivers License
Can you convert a military license to a civilian license after retirement or resignation from SANDF?
The matter of recognizing the military driver’s license is dealt with in the National Road Traffic Act, 1996 and the Regulations thereunder. As a consequence, The Road Traffic Management Corporation is not in a position to depart from the legislative or policy prescripts set by the Department of Transport.
Can I still convert an expired driver’s license contained in an identity document to a civilian license?
If you failed to convert a driver’s license contained in an identity document during the conversion period, then your license ceases to exist.
