Vehicle Registrations

In South Africa, your vehicle must be registered at the relevant district Licensing department. Motor Vehicle Registration is not the same as Vehicle Licensing. Without a registered vehicle, you cannot obtain a license disc and might end up with a nasty traffic fine when driving the unregistered vehicle on public roads.

Side-note: If your motor vehicle is financed, the financing institution is the titleholder of the vehicle.

Always keep the original copy of your motor vehicle registration certificate in a safe place, as it is not a fairly easy task to obtain a copy of this document (refer to duplicate-original-natis-certificate).
