Thread: Can you get your vehicle license disc at the postoffice?

  1. #1

    Default Can you get your vehicle license disc at the postoffice?

    I was stopped by a traffic officer today - who pointed out that my Vehicle License has expired. I never received my renewal in the post and thus forgot all about it. As I have just started a new job and would hate to explain to my new boss why i have to take off so early in my new career, I would like to know if there is an easier way I can get that disc. My father in law mentioned that I can take the page which the previous license was cut out of and collect a new one from the post office...and pay my arrears as well. Can it honestly be so easy? And do I get it instantly? I really hope I can get it straight away as I need my car licensed to get to work

    Since a good few years.
    Not all Post Offices though, only at selected ones.

    In Durban, it can be done at the Westville Post Office.
    No queue at all, compared to the few hours one has to wait at the licensing offices.

    You guys just reminded me, mine expred on the 29th of October and I am yet to renew it.
    I was told that you can do so via FNB Cellphone Banking. Is it so?
    If the grass is greener on the other side, it probably has more poep in it

    I think it depends on your area but we'vebeen able to do it here in PE for the past couple of years . . . it's made life so much easier.

    No, you have to renew it within the geographic borders of your licensing area. Johannesburg = a Johannesburg Post Office, Ekurhuleni = an Ekurhuleni Post Office, etc.

    Think you can get a family member/friend to get new license and post it to you, that's what I did here.

    Also have GP number plate in PMB

    That depends on how they are feeling at the licensing offices, it seems...

    In Dec last year we were travelling to Bloem and went through a routine stop - they also pointed out that it was going to expire soon but said that we could renew in Bloem (yeah right...). My mother still had the paperwork at her place so took it to get renewed so she could send it to me, but they said it was not allowed.

    Yet I heard that a friend's relative did the same for him and it was allowed.
