You have 21 days grace on expired car licence.Actually no, let me tell you a little story...
Before I left that GP shytehole for the Western Cape I was harassed by these a-grade P.O.S.
So my licence disk was one day past expiry... I was actually going to have it done at month end.
So this McDonalds addicted METRO POLICE officer proceeds to radio her chums up the road who are harassing other motorists, to check if my license has been renewed etc.. Which of course it hasn't been yet.
She lets me go and says "Hau eish... system is offline"
This happened three times.
I think their database systems are so farked up the creek they cannot really trust the data.
The funniest incident was paying pulled over and my drivers licence was expiring the next day.
