You’ll now need proof of resid

Heads up, folks, as of this month (November 2015), you’ll need proof of residence when applying to renew your vehicle licence.

The new rule came into effect on Monday (November 1 2015) by the National Department of Transport as part of Regulation 32A of the National Road Traffic Regulations.

If you don’t have this info, there’s a chance that the issuing of your vehicle lisence disc could be denied.

According to the department, new requirements entail the provision of proof of a person’s particulars (full names and identity document) and the residential and postal address for verification when:

There is a change of the person’s particulars or change of address
When an application is made for a national traffic information system (NaTIS) service at the City’s Motor Vehicle Registration offices or at a driving licence testing centre.
These include, amongst others, applying for a driving licence, applying for the renewal of a driving licence, applying for a learner’s licence, applying for vehicle licence disc, renewing a vehicle licence disc, and registering a vehicle.

The Department of Transport says the purpose of this regulation is to ensure all people registered on the system “promptly and timeously receive their vehicle and driving licence renewal notices and any other road traffic related communique.”
