4x4 Community Radio Licenses

4x4 Community Radio Licenses

During previous years a single entity had the monopoly over radio licenses to the 4x4 community in South Africa. This all changed in 2015 when the radio regulations were changed and updated to enable clubs and groups to apply to ICASA for a license, and then issue licenses to their own members. (To view the actual regulations click the menu link "Regulations" above. 

No longer are you forced to belong to specified 4x4 clubs to have a legal off-road radio license. The only requirements is your need to be a member of the SA 4x4 Community Forum, and there is no cost associated to that.

The licensing model was also changed during previous years away from the license per radio model, to license per person model. This means that if you if have a mobile radio fitted to your vehicle, and also use a handheld radio you now only require a single license.

The 4x4Community radio license only covers VHF radios, should you require any other license please apply via ICASA direct or contact a radio dealer for information.

The cost per person for the radio license is R225.00 per year, and the license year is 01 Apr - 31 March. Your license will be valid from the date of issue, until 31 March of the following year, the cost remains the same.

The process explained:

1) Fill in the form.
2) Attach a clear copy of your ID document.
3) Submit your payment as per the instructions received via email.

Once payment reflects in our bank account will your application be processed and you will receive a PDF copy of your radio license. At the bottom of this document you will notice a small area indicated by cut marks, you can cut the bottom part off, and keep that in your vehicle.
